About me

I joined the the Design team at the Wikimedia Foundation on April 2020 as a Data Analyst. I am also a 5th year PhD student at Northwestern University in the Computer Science and Communications departments.

My work

I study collaboration within large online communities, with a specific interest in multi-language and multi-cultural platforms. I am advised by Darren Gergle, and I currently collaborate with Aaron Shaw. My dissertation work focuses on building socio-technical systems for identifying knowledge gaps in peer produced knowledge repositories (like Wikipedia!)

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
