Meta-Science: Cross-Cultural & Reproducibility in Psychology

Meta-scientific research involving collaborations across various countries often addressing reproducibility, open practices and cross-cultural research.

YEARS: 2018 -->

In this section I present some of the projects and outcomes resulting from collaborative studies involving students and international colleagues from different countries.


In the past few years, I have been engaged in meta-scientific research. Working alongside experts from various countries, and in different network of researchers, I have been involved in several collaborative projects. These projects emphasize the importance of the reproducibility of scientific findings, the adoption of open science practices, and integration of cultural variables, to ensure that research is reliable and reflect the diverse world we live in.
