Over

Short bio

Dr. Andrea Scharnhorst is senior research fellow at DANS. In her academic career she moved from statistical physics, to philosophy of science, scientometrics and information sciences. She has published on models of innovation and science dynamics, the Matthew effect in science, the evolution of classification systems, the use of digital research archives, visual interfaces for information navigation, and the application of linked data in the humanities. Often her work entails the transfer of concepts and methods at an interface between physics and social sciences and humanities.

Dr. Scharnhorst coordinated and participated in several EU- and national funded projects. From 2013-2017 she was chair of the COST Action TD1210 "Knowescape". Most recently, she was one of the PI's of the Digging into Data project "Digging into the knowledge graph".

Dr. Scharnhorst publishes regularly in Information Science journals. She is co-editor of the following books:
