Research Fellow, RoRI and Researcher, Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS), Leiden University

Judit Varga is a Researcher at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) at Leiden University in the Netherlands. She is a social scientist with a doctorate in science and technology studies (STS) (University of Nottingham, 2021) and a background in psychology. Her work focuses on exploring the interactions between quantitative and interpretative methods in social science; the politics of quantification; values in science (evaluation); interdisciplinarity; and science in society.

Her doctoral research provided new methodological insights about combining STS and scientometrics, and explored interdisciplinary interactions in a subfield of computational social science.

As part of RoRI, Judit studies how narrative CVs shape science evaluation with Helen Buckley Woods and Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner.
