New in OSIRIS: Kristin Oxley
OSIRIS is happy to welcome a new member of the research team: PhD candidate Kristin Oxley!
Kristin has been employed at the Research Council of Norway for the last 12 years and before that, she worked at NordForsk, a Nordic research funding organization. She has also acted as an observer of research funding peer review panels at the EU-level for the last 14 years.
She has thus developed a strong interest in the functioning of grant peer review panels and through her PhD project she will carry out observations of such panels in a selection of research funding agencies, focusing on three main questions of inquiry:
- What are the dominant group interaction dynamics in grant peer review panels and how do organizational factors influence these dynamics?
- What are the challenges associated with evaluating interdisciplinary/novel research in grant peer review panels and how can organizational factors help or hinder effective evaluation?
- What are the challenges associated with evaluating impact ex ante in grant peer review panels and how can organizational factors help or hinder effective evaluation?
