Simine Vazire is professor of psychology at the University of Melbourne, and an ARC Future Fellow. She studies metascience and research methods/practices, focusing on social science. Her research interests include the assessment of the quality and integrity of scientific studies, the peer review process, and the scientific community at large. Simine is interested in how transparency and criticism are (or aren’t) used to make science more self-correcting. Her training is in social and personality psychology, and her interests in scientific practices and norms stems largely from her experiences in that field, particularly the so-called replication crisis. She is the current editor-in-chief of Collabora: Psychology; past editor-in-chief of Social Psychology and Personality Psychology, and co-founded the Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS). Simine was a co-PI on the repliCATS projects (Collaborative Assessments for Trustworthy Science).
