About me

I joined the the Research team at the Wikimedia Foundation on October 2018 as a Research Scientist. I currently live in the glorious Twin Cities, MN, USA.

My work

My background is in geography and human-computer interaction, with a special focus on understanding (and trying to do something about) how structural inequalities find their way online and into algorithmic systems.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
