Dr. John McLevey has been awarded an Early Researcher Award from the Ministry of Research and Innovation for his work on the emergence of large scale communication and collaboration networks in open source technology development. This five-year award provides funding for graduate students working in Dr. McLevey's NetLab, which combines methods from sociology, information science, and computer science to study large-scale social and political networks.
Dr. McLevey has also been awarded a new Insight Development Grant from SSHRC for research on the effects of new open science policies on the relationships between public, private, and academic biomedical research and development.
Finally, Dr. McLevey is a coinvestigator on a new SSHRC Insight Development Grant (PI Kathryn Plaisance) on the diffusion philosophy of science through the sciences.
