I am a PhD candidate at the University of Washington Information School. My research focuses on methodologically sound techniques and research designs for the collection, curation, and analysis of social media data in social science research. This work takes place in the context of social movements utilizing social media. I have a BA in International Studies, and a Masters in Liberal Studies, with a focus on public policy and technology, from Northern Kentucky University.

I am a founding member of the NSF funded Social Media Lab @ UW.

I previously studied viral information flows as a member of the retroV research team.
