- 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
- B.A. (2001), Computer Science, Macalester College, St. Paul, MN.
- Ph.D. (2010), Computer Science, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN.
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.
