Dr. Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner

Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner is a postdoctoral researcher in the SES group. His dissertation, which he defended cum laude in 2015, used approaches from Science & Technology Studies to understand how the use of digital research tools and infrastructures changes scholarly practices in the humanities. Since then, Wolfgang has focused on the empirical and conceptual analysis of research evaluation systems and their interaction with practices of knowledge production across diverse fields. One of his main current interests is to understand how referees interpret and use academic CVs in peer review for funding and tenure decisions. Wolfgang has published in journals such as Minerva, Science as Culture, and Science & Public Policy. Next to research, Wolfgang is involved in teaching a variety of courses in the CWTS minor, as well as in consulting work for the CWTS B.V.
