Richelle Boone, MSc

Richelle Boone is a PhD candidate in the Science Based Business group at Leiden University. Her research is part of the ERC project ‘Addressing Global Challenges through International Scientific Consortia (INSCONS)’. The INSCONS project looks into the social and organisational dynamics of international scientific consortia. Richelle will study those dynamics in ITER, an international megaproject developing an experimental nuclear fusion reactor. She is especially interested in interdisciplinary collaboration in ITER and ethnographic fieldwork will be an important component of her research. Her supervisor is Professor Simcha Jong and her co-supervisor is Professor Sarah de Rijcke. Richelle obtained a BSc in Physics & Astronomy from Utrecht University in 2015 and a MSc in History & Philosophy of Science from the same university in 2018.
