Dr Daniele Fanelli

EBSI - École de bibliothéconomie et des sciences de l'information, Université de Montréal

Daniele Fanelli trained as a behavioural ecologist at the University of Florence, Italy, and the University of Copenhagen, in Denmark. After a PhD on the behaviour and genetics of Malaysian and Panamanian tropical wasps, he did a Masters degree in Scientific Communication at the University of Milan, Italy.

While writing for prominent magazines including New Scientist, L’Espresso and Le Scienze, he developed a profound interest for philosophical and sociological studies of science. This passion has not left him ever since.

Research interests

Daniele’s research focuses on bias and misconduct in science, and in scientific communication:

• How common are these misbehaviours?

• What are their main causes?

• Are all disciplines, fields and research themes equally objective (or non-objective)?

• Can we tell in advance which research findings are more or less likely to be true?

• How do the media report on different sciences, and on cases of scientific misconduct?

Daniele will help answer these questions by advanced statistical methods, combined with qualitative analyses.
