I am Nicolas Robinson-Garcia, PhD (International Doctorate) in Social Sciences. I am a Juan de la Cierva-Formación Fellow researcher at Ingenio (CSIC-Universidad Politècnica de Valencia) under the supervision of Ismael Rafols. During my PhD I was visiting researcher at the CWTS at Leiden University. I was also member of the Department of Library Studies of the University of Granada where I have taught several courses on information management and archives. I have taught several online courses and collaborate as a consultant for EC3metrics  spin-off.

I am specialised in the field of bibliometrics. The main research lines I have worked on are: 1) disciplinary biases of university rankings, 2) the development of indicators for assessing the SSH and 3) the study of new metrics and data sources. I am currently interested on the understanding of the different roles of researchers and on the analysis of research evaluation schemes largely based on quantitative indicators.
