My work has focused on the intersections of computing and democratic life, whether dissertating in German history, developing International Space Station software, or working on projects like the bibliographic Zotero, the New Orleans Research Collaborative, and ELMO (election monitoring and more). I have worked for The Carter Center, Emory University, and The Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
I joined Global Voices in September 2016 to oversee NewsFrames for a while. Currently, I direct a project called NewsQ, which aims to elevate quality journalism through tackling the news ranking and recommendation problem.
I like thinking about data and culture, and am inordinately fond of British murder mysteries, small plastic objects, and at the moment: singing contests.
