Can scientific research be improved?

My name is Cecilia Tilli. I’ve been working with science and scientific research in different ways: as a PhD student, as a business developer for science-based start-ups and as a grant-maker for research projects. Over time, I have become more and more interested in the scientific research system in itself as something that is both extremely valuable and highly imperfect.

In July 2021 I was granted support from the EA Infrastructure Fund to explore career- and project opportunities aiming to improve the scientific research system. I will spend a year trying to understand the most important challenges, understand what is being done through different existing initiatives and also if there is something more that we could potentially do to improve scientific research.

Most content will be crossposted both here and on the EA Forum.

If you have thoughts about my work or are doing something related that you’d like to share with me, I’d be happy to chat!
