Tamarinde Haven, MSc


I am a PhD student in Philosophy and I am currently working on investigating the status of research integrity. My background is in Psychology at the University of Groningen and the University of Calgary. Afterwards I obtained an MSc from the University of Edinburgh in Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition. My project combines empirical research methodology with philosophical investigations.

Areas of expertise

My philosophical interests are diverse, I have a background in epistemology and philosophy of cognitive science, yet I am currently digging into the realm of philosophy of science.


My PhD research concerns Research Integrity and is part of the research project “The Epistemic Responsibilities of the University” (funded by the Templeton World Charity Organization and co-funded by the four Amsterdam academic institutions). The aim of the project is to analyze, ground and understand the determinants of research integrity and designing effective ways to foster responsible conduct of research by performing surveys, focus group interviews and interventions
