Brief Bio: 

I study politicians, non-profit organizations, and television fans to understand how people use social media to organize, discuss, and enact social change.

Social media has some very real toxicity challenges, like harassment and cyberbullying, that diminish its utility for collective and democratic efforts, so I work on curbing those too.

I also study data curation, especially how we evaluate (a) the impacts of data reuse and (b) investments in curating and disseminating research data.
