My research interests are centered around understanding the tangled landscape of online governance. Right now, I'm interested in the complexity of governing large-scale, decentralized social computing systems (e.g. Reddit, Wikipedia) that results in diverse notions of governance across subcommunities.
A lot of my work is motivated by an interest in: complexities arising in governance, such as how online groups diversely interpret, innovate beyond, subvert, and co-opt rule ambiguities + platform constraints/allowances to manage themselves; what implications the varied governing work of these groups has on platform-level regulatory effectiveness; and in what ways current ideas about "online governance" might be inadequate.
If you're interested in collaborating or have any questions, please get in touch :)
