I am a cognitive psychologist turned research coordinator. I am currently building a database curating studies conducted by HBEC-researchers. The database aims to systematically catalog all relevant attributes of HBEC-studies, such as personnel, field sites, methods, equipment, collected data, and publications. The goal is to make the scientific process more transparent and to provide HBECers with access to past and present research efforts. In particular, the database will greatly facilitate the implementation of longitudinal studies and cross-cultural comparisons.
