Dr. Elisabeth Bik is an independent Science Integrity Consultant. She is also an image sleuth, investigating independently into image manipulations in scientific publications and publically publishing her findings. Dr. Bik is a microbiologist that worked in the public sector in the Netherlands, was a research associate at Stanford University, and as a scientific editorial director at uBiome, a microbiome startup before opening her consultancy.
We touched base on her transition from academia to industry and what it means to be an independent, self-employed, consultant in the world of science. We talked about keeping scientific integrity and values, challenges in academia, and how to keep an eye for misconduct.
