Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

I believe in making open science a standard part of our research process as an ’embedded practice’, which means being transparent, making our work reproducible, and collaborating with others throughout.

I also enjoy talking about open science concepts because it helps people understand ‘how science is done’ rather than just ‘what the science is about’.
