Alex Rushforth is a researcher at CWTS. His work is located in social studies of science, with particular focus on research evaluation. Alex has longstanding interests in the uses of indicators in research and evaluation settings. His current research interests focus on the challenges of scaling-up and sustaining novel evaluation practices across university research settings. Alex is part of the TARA project (Tools to Advance Research Assessment), an international applied research collaboration between CWTS and the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (supported by the Arcadia Fund), that aims to accelerate research assessment reforms.
