We are pleased to announce that the winners of 2019 Travel Award, sponsored by MDPI and Publications, are Jiangen He and Olmo van den Akker.
Jiangen He is a PhD student in the Department of Information Science at Drexel University, USA. Jiangen’s research focuses on the development of quantitative and qualitative approaches to the study of how science advances, especially through machine learning, visual analytics, and predictive analysis.
Olmo van den Akker is a PhD student at the meta-research group at Tilburg University, the Netherlands. He is working on several projects, such as studying researchers’ interpretations of statistical results and the efficacy of preregistration, which is expected to present the preliminary results of this preregistration project at the Metascience Symposium 2019 at Stanford University.
It has certainly been a difficult decision, with such a collection of high-quality applications for the awards. We would like to thank all of the applicants for submitting such a range of diverse and fascinating research topics and congratulate the winners for their accomplishment.
