Open Science

I strongly believe that open science is necessary for good science. By "good science" I mean experiments which are reproducible and replicable. By "strongly believe" I mean that I can support this claim with arguments and evidence, but I am open to counter-arguments and will be very happy to discuss about this topic.


I sometimes do talks and workshops about the why and how of open/replicable science. I try to combine the necessary theoretical knowledge (the statistics behind the replication crisis) with practical steps towards better research (open workflow).


Below you will find a list of talks and workshops I've held in the past: If you are interested in hosting one of these talks or workshops (or variations thereof) at your department, please contact me. Note that I can give talks in English, German, Russian, Italian, or Czech (with some stuttering for the latter two languages).
