J. Nathan Matias
As founder of the Citizens and Technology Lab and as an academic researcher, I work alongside the public through citizen behavioral science to discover and test ideas for a safer, fairer, more understanding internet. I am currently an assistant professor at the Cornell University Department of Communication. My role as visiting scholar at the MIT Media Lab ended in 2020. I completed my PhD at the MIT Media Lab Center for Civic Media and was a fellow and affiliate at the Berkman Center from 2013 through 2017.
In 2015, I organized a project on Meta to create a resource guide to research on online harassment and other content moderation questions. It's due an update, so contact me if you're interested (I can be found at firstname.lastname@example.org)
I am also an active contributor on AcaWiki, where I summarize academic publications for a public audience.
This is my personal account. Starting in 2019, I created the account User:CS natematias for edits that I make as part of research I am conducting with Wikipedians. You can read more about that research at CivilServant's Wikimedia studies.
