Luiz Augusto Campos is a Professor of Sociology and Political Science at the Institute of Social and Political Studies of the State University of Rio de Janeiro (IESP-UERJ). He received his PhD in Sociology from IESP-UERJ in 2013.
Campos is the editor-in-chief of the journal DATA and the coordinator of two research groups: the Social Sciences Monitor and the Group on Multidisciplinary Studies of Affirmative Action.
This project aims to survey the social profile of scientists in the natural sciences (biology, geosciences, physics, and chemistry) and computer science and mathematics. The research team will use various methods to collect data, which will then be structured into a database for future analysis by the academic community and policymakers.
The project is still in its early stages, but more information will be available soon.
