Research highlight
  • I co-founded Cyclopath, a web map serving the bicycling community of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. This research system is a “geowiki”: any user can edit both the base map as well as points of interest and other annotations, and changes are live immediately (i.e., they are peer-reviewed after publication, not before).
  • When I left in fall 2010, Cyclopath had over 2,000 registered users and the map had been revised over 12,000 times. Our team had grown to 5 graduate students, one undergraduate, and one software engineer. We had produced 6 peer-reviewed research papers and the annual budget (largely NSF funding) was approximately $285,000.
  • I am a member of ACM SIGCHI and ACM SIGCSE. I have served as Social Media Chair for WikiSym 2011, as Publicity Co-Chair for CSCW 2013, and on program committees for WikiSym 2011 and CHI 2011 Works-In-Progress.
 Educational Background/Employment:
  • B.A. (2001), Computer Science, Macalester College, St. Paul, MN.
  • Ph.D. (2010), Computer Science, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.

Research Interests:

    As a researcher in computer science focusing on human-centered computing, I work to empower communities to make better decisions in pursuit of a sustainable, secure, and just global future. I do this by exploring the tools and algorithms which facilitate human communication, collaboration, and shared creation of knowledge, with a current focus on the use of such tools and algorithms to answer quantitative questions about the real world.
