Bestuurslid Databeheer, Clariah NL • Senior research fellow, DANS

Dr. Andrea Scharnhorst is Coordinator of the Research&Innovation group at DANS. In her academic career she moved from statistical physics, to philosophy of science, scientometrics and information sciences. She has published on models of innovation and science dynamics, the Matthew effect in science, the evolution of classification systems, the use of digital research archives, visual interfaces for information navigation, and the application of linked data in the humanities. Often her work entails the transfer of concepts and methods at an interface between physics and social sciences and humanities.
