I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and a Research Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.

I study political and economic dimensions of collective action online. My current projects address the effects of power inequalities in information sharing communities; the relationship between online participation and political engagement; and the dynamics of participation in commercial crowdsourcing markets and non-commercial peer production projects.

Some of my previous research has compared participatory infrastructure of the right and left of the U.S. political blogosphere; investigated the origins of Free Software policies in Brazil; and analyzed applications of crowdsourcing for both social scientific research and humanitarian crisis relief.

At the Berkman Center, I collaborate a lot with Professor Yochai Benkler and fellow Fellow Benjamin Mako Hill.

A few copies of papers are available on my website or you can email me.
