I am a social computing researcher and MA / PhD student in the Department of Communication at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. I study organizational behavior, intergroup communication, and newcomer socialization in online communities. I am also a member of the Community Data Science Collective.
I’m interested in emerging social phenomena on and across new media platforms: labor in live-streaming channels; social and organizational affordances of team collaboration applications; group communication in competitive gaming; and governance in subreddit and other peer-production communities.
