Dr. Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner

Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner is a senior researcher and director of research and education at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University. He is a coordinator of the Evaluation & Culture focal area.

Wolfgang’s work focuses on scholarly communication and how its various formats and practices shape the knowledge created by academic researchers across different fields. This includes attending to the constitutive effects of research evaluation, changing forms of academic self-representation, political economies of academic work, as well as attempts to innovate scholarly publishing.

Wolfgang is also a research fellow at the Research on Research Institute (RoRI), where he co-leads RoRI’s work program on the use of narrative CVs in peer review. Before joining CWTS, Wolfgang was a postdoctoral researcher at the Munich Center for Technology in Society (MCTS) at the Technical University of Munich. He obtained his PhD degree with honors in 2015 at Leiden University.
