Fabio Crameri

Good science is patiently and carefully crafted, objective, and most of all, accessible. Good science is also making and acknowledging mistakes. I believe, therefore, that good science needs a fair, supportive and, instead of a competitive, a collaborative academic work environment that values all researchers. Academic teams should be primarily diverse, instead of solely high h-indexed, to keep expanding our knowledge and understanding.
I also think that methodological skills like scientific writing, where uncertainties are more important than a catchy story, scientific visualisation, where actual data is more significant than the author's interpretation, and scientific outreach, where simplicity achieves more than intelligently sounding complexity, are all part of the craft and must – under all circumstances – be valued.

    Research portfolio

    • Cutting-edge global, spherical numerical models of mantle convection with single-sided subduction.

    • Up-to-date geoscientific concepts that sharpen community discussion and research.

    • Trans-disciplinary data and knowledge collections to bring today’s dispersed, highly specialised and niche individual research back on a community level to sharpen both the individual effort and common understanding of pivotal problems in and beyond the Earth Sciences.

    • Open-access community tools to enrich common research methodologies with scientific accuracy, reproducibility, and inclusivity.

    • Tireless social commitments to improve academia's work environment.
