Open Science Room - OHBM
I contributed to organising the Open Science Room at the Organisation of Human Brain Mapping conference (2020). My primary role was that of "Community Engagement - Speakers" which involved exchanging emails with speakers to prepare them for their presentation and provide support during the conference. This role included managing communications with over 100 speakers to ensure the smooth running of ~50 conference sessions. My secondary role was that of an "Open Research Advisor", which meant I was a primary point of contact for conference attendees unfamiliar with open research practices and looking for an introduction.
Blogpost for BMJ Open Science
May 2020 - Wrote an invited blogpost for British Medical Journal - Open Science about my journey into open research and the incremental steps that early career researchers can take to improve the transparency and reproducibility of our research. Read at: https://go.shr.lc/2M0BwVQ
Open Research Calendar (co-founder)
The Open Research Calendar (@openresearchcal)” was created as a tool to serve the open research community in collating worldwide open research events into one database. This translates onto a Google Calendar which can be synced into a person’s own personal calendar (updating as new events get added). The tool was designed, created and beta-tested in January of 2020 and then officially launched in February 2020. Co-founded with Bradley Kennedy, Cassandra Gould van Praag, and Esther Plomp.
Interview on ResearcHersCode podcast
Was interviewed for Episode 10 (What is Open Science?), discussing what makes good science and what can we do as early career researchers, to work reproducibly and transparently.
RIOT Science Club
I am a board member of the RIOT Science club a weekly seminar series that promotes and provides training in Reproducible, Interpretable, Open & Transparent Science. Alongside Miguel Xochicale, I have worked to extend RIOTS to the St Thomas' Hospital campus.
As part of RIOTS @ St Thomas' , I gave a talk on how early career researchers can implement open science practices in their workflow, ensuring that reproducibility and transparency are embedded in the research process.
Co-author of UKRN Primer
Advanced Methods for Reproducible Science
Was accepted to attend the UKRN course on Advanced Methods for Reproducible Science (Jan 2020), a week-long course covering all things open science. I wrote a blog post about my experience, available here.
