How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
I already have six years of experience working with Citizen Science data, mostly VGI. Back in 2011, while doing my MSc, I was retrieving and standardizing volunteer data coming from the Meteoclimatic network in Spain and learning how to disseminate it through the OGC SOS standard. After that we developed a mobile application to collect volunteered samples of urban noise. Currently, I am doing my PhD in which I work with thousands of volunteer observations that I model using machine learning algorithms. And writing papers for journals/conferences when possible! :-)
