I am an Assistant Professor in the The Information School at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I co-direct the Collaborative Computing Group with Adam Rule and Jacob Thebault-Spieker. I received a PhD in Information Science and Technology (2019) from the Information School at Syracuse University where I worked with Kevin Crowston and Carsten Østerlund. After my PhD, I spent one-year as a teaching postdoc in Berkely’s Master’s in Data Science (MIDS) program.
My area of research lies at the intersection of Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) and human-centered design/computing. I approach investigations through empirical investigations of how people contribute to and participate in virtual environments. Prior research projects have included: studying the motivations of volunteer crowd workers, investigating the arrangement of learning resources in informal learning environments, conducting online experiments using theory-based motivational cues in online citizen science, and investigating the coordinative mechanisms of knowledge production in online communities. As a faculty member, this work has been funded (with a multi-institution collaborative grant) by the National Science Foundation (HCC).
