Transparency and reproducibility are core values guiding my research. I frequently collect primary data, which I aim to make accessible to the public. During the pandemic, I founded the Oxford Supertracker to assist researchers in navigating new data sources.

Abstract The Oxford Supertracker is a global directory of over several hundred policy trackers and surveys related to COVID-19. This novel collection is designed to assist researchers and policy-makers in keeping track of a rapidly growing number of data sources. You can search and identify relevant information resources, such as datasets, surveys, and systematic collections, across different areas, countries and data types.

Abstract The amount of COVID-19 related research being produced within the first weeks following the implementation of far-reaching lockdowns across the globe has been impressive. To keep track of new sources, I have compiled a collection of currently over 100 policy trackers and datasets on the topic. The compilation is not meant to be exhaustive and I am grateful for general feedback you may have or suggestions on new sources.
