Jason Chin is senior lecturer at the College of Law at the Australian National University, the former (2020-21) President of the Association for Interdisciplinary Meta-research and Open Science (AIMOS), and the inaugural registered reports editor for Forensic Science International: Synergy. He is also a member of the Evidence, policy, and influence collaborative (EPIC) at the Charles Perkins Centre. Jason studies the many ways in which science informs the legal system, and particularly how that relationship can be improved. This includes making sure law relies on the most transparent and reliable psychology, forensic science, criminology, and empirical legal research. In law, this often applies to expert evidence and law reform. He’s also interested in broader questions, like what meta-research tells us about how to build knowledge in a credible and efficient way.
