Balazs Szigeti has studied theoretical physics at Imperial College, but turned towards neuroscience for his PhD studies. His main work is about the behavioural neuroscience of invertebrates, but he has a diverse scientific portfolio that includes computational neuroscience and driving forward the OpenWorm open science initiative. Balazs is also the editor of the Dose of Science blog that is published in collaboration with the Drugreporter website. The blog discusses and critically asses scientific studies about recreational drugs. Recently Balazs has started a collaboration with the Global Drug Survey to quantitatively compare the dose of recreational users of various drugs with the scientific literature. A better understanding of how people actually use drugs provides important context for the interpretation of scientific studies.
