How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
DIY Bio is redefining science education, research, community engagement and scientific, technological, cultural and artistic production. It is empowering citizens, expanding amateur expertise and turning problems and ideas into products and solutions. Adopting and enhancing the principles and methodologies of DIYbio is an innovative way for schools, museums, science centers and cultural centers to embed an ethos of active and “real” research into their institutions that go beyond traditional science workshops. I manage and facilitate the introduction of transdisciplinary DIY bio culture and methodology into cultural and educational institutions by creating community labs and DIY science programs. I would like to close the gap between Citizen Science and DIY science and bring citizen science to the communities and to the institutions that I am working with.
