Her research is part of the ERC project ‘Addressing Global Challenges through International Scientific Consortia (INSCONS)’. The INSCONS project looks into the challenges involved in organising international scientific consortia and the broader changes these consortia herald for scientific endeavour.

She is being supervised by Professor Simcha Jong, Professor of Science Based Business and leader of the INSCONS project, and co-supervised by Professor Sarah de Rijcke, Professor in Science & Evaluation Studies and Scientific Director at the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS) in Leiden.

Richelle obtained a BSc in Physics & Astronomy from Utrecht University in 2015 (cum laude), and a MSc in History & Philosophy of Science from the same university in 2018 (cum laude). In 2019 she has been a trainee in the Scientific Foresight Unit (STOA) of the European Parliamentary Research Service in Brussels. Both during her BSc and her MSc Richelle has been active in Utrecht University’s interdisciplinary honours education as a student and an assistant.
