I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at The Center for an Informed Public (CIP) at the University of Washington. My current research is on how sociotechnical systems influence the decision making of social groups. I study this phenomenon in the context of the vaccine debate on social networks and digital communities.  I have specifically been studying the vaccine decision-making process in the context of Facebook but my work intersects with the spread of misinformation on social media platforms and digital communities. 


I completed my Ph.D. in Information Studies at the University of Texas at Austin under the advisement of Dr. Kenneth R. Fleischmann. In my free time (what's free time?), I collect hobbies.
