I'm an assistant professor in the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin. My research falls at the intersection of computer science and social science and is situated within the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). I currently study how people use communication technologies like social media to spread, shape and confront disinformation and misinformation. I also conduct research into designing experiences in which we can observe and reflect on our participation in these information spaces and the effects that is having on us. Beyond academia, I’ve had the good fortune to work as a researcher and consultant with several large organizations like Facebook, Yahoo!, The World Bank and the UN.
