Bastian Greshake Tzovaras

SSI fellow

Inserm, Université de Paris

My main research interest is bringing the principles of open science and online collaboration to citizen science – enabling grassroots innovation that is lead by communities.

I am currently a senior researcher within the "Tools, Practices & Systems" programme at The Alan Turing Institute in London. Before that, I was a research fellow at Université Paris Cité/Inserm, where I started the Peer-Produced Research Lab. With an interdisciplinary team that covers social sciences, human-computer interaction, and software engineering backgrounds we are exploring how the creation of digital infrastructure and software can support communities in doing their own citizen science projects. Beyond a pure academic interest in how communities engage in knowledge production, we are particularly focusing on supporting community driven citizen science projects.

In addition to this academic work I also act as the Director of Research for the Open Humans Foundation – a US-based non-profit that provides digital infrastructure that enables individuals to collect, aggregate and explore their personal data and mechanisms to share the data for research – and started openSNP, one of the largest open data repositories for personal genomics data.
