What do I do?
My research interests lie at the intersection of online systems and users. How do users self-organize within the constraints of a system and how can systems adapt to these needs. This juncture between the humanistic look at users and the technical considerations of systems design characterizes most of my research, which includes sociological looks at online crowds, the communication of data through visualization, and online communication data mining.
