Maite Pelacho :)

I obtained a degree in Physics at the University of Valencia and the Research aptitude in Environmental Engineering at the University of Zaragoza. I hold the Master in Philosophy, Science and Values by the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU.

I am currently working towards a PhD within the 'Philosophy, Science and Values' PhD Programme at the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU. My doctoral research is related to two core ideas: a better understanding and application of citizen science, along with a vision of knowledge - scientific knowledge in particular - as a commons. I am particularly interested in knowing  the conditions for achieving a citizen science that favors the constitution of science as a commons. All this without losing sight of the framework of the current European policies.

Since 2007 I have actively collaborated with the Ibercivis Foundation for citizen science, where I am currently working as researcher and projects manager.

My research interests mainly include: scientific and civic education, philosophy of science, science policy, ethics, and environmental issues.
