I am an Associate Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington. I co-founded the Center for an Informed Public. I study the Science of Science and worry about the spread of misinformation. My laboratory consists of the millions of scholarly papers and public posts about science. I develop knowledge discovery tools to facilitate and study science, with a particular interest in how sociological and economic factors drive and slow the evolution of science.
- Looking forward to seeing students and colleagues back on campus this Fall.
- Learn to call bullshit wrapped in data and statistics: Calling Bullshit: The Art of Skepticism in a Data-Driven World.
- I am always looking for students and postdocs to join the lab. Please feel free to email me and we can discuss open positions.
