Natascha studies how groups of people determine whether their online sources are trustworthy. "From 'fake news' to phishing, online mis- and disinformation are rampant, and can be difficult to distinguish from authoritative information. I'm hoping to help users make this distinction a little easier." Learn more about her.
Ian specializes in value-sensitive design, the history of technology, and multi-lifespan information system design. He's interested in the question of why technologies evolved as they have. "Things aren't created in a vacuum – what drives innovation, and how can we understand that through the process of design that transforms idea into artifact?" Learn more about him.
Amanda specializes in computer-supported cooperative work, specifically as it applies to Wikipedia. "I hope the findings from my research prompt people in all fields to consider the ways in which systemic bias impacts the kinds of information they not only encounter but also the kinds of information they generate and curate."
