Kairi Kreegipuu is Associate Professor and Senior Research Fellow of Experimental Psychology at the Institute of Psychology of the University of Tartu. Starting from 1 April 2020, she also works as Research Integrity Counsellor for the Faculty of Social Sciences. She offers advice and support for university members who have questions about adhering to the principles of research integrity or suspect that research integrity has been violated.
Kreegipuu graduated from the University of Tartu in psychology in 1996 and has worked at the Institute of Psychology in various positions. In 2018–2019 she was a visiting professor at the Dalian University of Technology and in 2019–2020 at the University of Latvia. For her, the various recognitions she has received have meant new exciting and interesting opportunities in work or research. She believes that her positions as the President of the Estonian Union of Psychologists (2014–2018), as the Vice Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences (2017–2019) and now as the Research Integrity Counsellor are all great acknowledgements.
Kreegipuu has varied experience in research integrity. Currently, she is finishing her 56th semester at the University of Tartu, most of that time having done research in experimental psychology. During that time, she has encountered various questions about research ethics and research integrity.
As a Research Integrity Counsellor, Kairi Kreegipuu hopes to contribute to the discussion about reshaping research practises and to give positive ideas and guidelines on how to solve or manage certain questions. She hopes that the information exchange between people who need answers and people who know the answers will be fruitful. Kreegipuu would be happy when after a year such dialogical communication would support the development and implementation of some new ways of good conduct in research.
