Theresa Velden studied physics at Bielefeld University and University College Dublin. After several years in positions of responsibility in the area of scientific publishing and information management at the Max Planck Society (1998-2005), she moved to Cornell University. At Cornell, she did her PhD in information science with an external minor in Science & Technology Studies in 2011. In her dissertation research, she studied and compared the sharing behaviour of research groups in chemistry and physics and developed an innovative bibliometric-ethnographic mixed method approach to support the comparative study of scientific fields. As a postdoc, she continued her research first at the Department for Information Science at Cornell University, then at the School of Information at the University of Michigan, where she further pursued the ethnographic study of challenges for interdisciplinary collaboration in data-intensive research projects. She was awarded a Marie Curie/IPODI Fellowship at the Center for Science and Technology (ZTG) at the Technische Universität Berlin for 2016-2018. During this time, she extended her theoretical and methodological knowledge in the sociology of science, and worked on the topics of field-specific forms of Open Science and reproducibility in science. She has been leading the junior research group Field-specific Forms of Open Science at the DZHW since August 2018.
