Interests

Methodologies and models of evaluation of scientific research, including analysis of the process leading to the creation of scientific products and criteria for allocation of financial and economic resources.

Thesis research: “Monitoring and evaluation of scientific research: a comparative analysis between Italy and the U.S.”.

Abstract. The aim of my thesis is to analyze the patterns of evaluation of scientific research in Italy and U.S., highlighting the aspects that contribute to the creation and evaluation of a scientific product.
In particular, I intend to show that the realization of a product or a scientific fact is the result of several socio-economic variables (funding, networks of scientific reports referees, links to important journals) involved and that they determine the final result.
In addition, by comparing the evaluation system of scientific research adopted in the two countries examined I intend under studyare to highlight the procedures, criteria, the logic used in Italian university and in Anglo-Saxon system with the objective a view to bring out the strengths and weakness of the two models.
The results of the research will be analyzed in light of a multidisciplinary approach that includes the contribution of the philosophy of science, history of science, psychology, sociology and economics.

Methodology: quantitative analysis of data about products of scientific research and interviews with relevant actors.
