Louise’s research interests are broadly centered on data-sharing issues within the life sciences. In particular, she is interested in how the data produced during scientific experimentation enters into circulation, and how it is valued by potential downstream users. Her work involves a strong empirical component, including a number of ethnographic studies in laboratories in the UK, USA, Kenya, Uganda, and South Africa. She is active in various initiatives advocating for better education on Open Data for scientists.
