I am by no means a formally trained scientist — I view research as an inherently collaborative and iterative learning process; thus research here is very “preprint.” A great piece on research philosophy here: https://www.cs.virginia.edu/~robins/YouAndYourResearch.pdf
BTW: Currently looking for undergrad level collaborators in the fields of ai, tech policy, and blockchain mechanism design. I can help source funding of $500 - $2000 depending on scope.
