About Connected Researchers

Why Connected Researchers?Screen Shot 2013-02-20 at 10.49.28 AM I often feel like academic research is stuck in the 1990s, when emails and word processors were the only tools we had to communicate. This is 2016, where are the Facebooks, the Kickstarters, the Google Docs for researchers?

Web-based tools for researcher do exist! You just might not know about them. Research-orientated social networking sites, tools to support scientific research, to manage labs and data, and to better communicate have been multiplying over the past years. These tools could change the way we do research. But the adoption rate is still slow, partly due to the lack of awareness.

This blog keeps readers updated on new services, provide short reviews and keeps an extensive list of web-based tools for researchers.

tcBiography. My name is Thomas Crouzier. I am a researcher, experienced in the fields of biomaterials and biopolymers. I have moved back and forth between my home country of France and the United States My last experience involves a 3-year postdoc at MIT (Cambridge, MA, USA) where he was a Marie Curie Fellow. I am now a group leader at the Royal Institute of Technology, KTH (Stockholm Sweden) where I work on biopolymer-based materials for biomedical applications (group website biopolymersforlife.org). A passion for new technologies and science policy has led me to start this blog about new online tools that are revolutionizing the way science is done in academia. I write to promote the use of these new tools and project researchers into the 21st century.

Guest Speaker
Over the past couple of years, I have had the great pleasure to be invited as guest speaker to talk about the changing research ecosystem, digital tools for researchers, open science, and my experience as a young researcher. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in learning more.
