I did my PhD at Centre for Science & Technology Studies (CWTS), Leiden University, Netherlands. For my PhD project, I'm investigated the alternative tools and metrics (altmetrics) as a new data source to understand the meaning and possibilities of measuring online evidence; to test their reliability and validity as well as the possibilities of their applications in research assessments purposes in order to know what kind of impact/influence could be extracted from altmetrics (social media metrics).
