Today we are here to welcoming our new PhD student Victoria Di Césare! She currently enjoys a FPI grant awarded by the spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and is a member of the EC3 Research Group and the COMPARE Project.
|Victoria Di Césare. PhD Student.||Victoria is from Saladillo, a countryside town in Argentina. She moved to Mar del Plata in order to start her academic career. She studied and worked for 10 years at the National University of Mar del Plata, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in Information Science. Before moving to Granada, Spain, she finished a master’s degree in Science, Technology and Society at the National University of Quilmes.|
Nowadays Victoria is interested in addressing both the empirical and the theoretical aspects of the scientific activity from a scientometric and from a sociological perspective. She is especially interested in the prioritization of science towards those ends that are the most urgent for humanity, such as the current climate crisis; in the constant tension between the development of local and global science; and also in the way scientists from the Global North and the Global South collaborate with each other.
At the moment, she is already committed to taking part in a comparative case study between South Africa, the United States, Argentina and Spain that aims at answering the main question “what role do researchers from centers of excellence play in international collaboration networks?”. Also, she will actively be involved in the management of the EC-3 and COMPARE project as supporting staff, organizing activities such as the academic reading club for PhD candidates and senior researchers.
