  • I work on questions related to the governance of science and, more broadly, sociology of science and innovation. Specifically, I work on the history and sociology of social sciences, research funding and research policy, and issues such as academic autonomy, decision-making, bibliometrics, impact analysis.

    My most recent publications include a monograph on the European Research Council, the first comprehensive analysis of its history, organisational setup, and impact, which has been published with Polity Press in January 2017.

    I write a blog on the Austrian newspaper Der Standard, "Politik Macht Wissenschaft"
