My research focuses on the sociotechnical aspects of cyberinfrastructure and eScience and includes areas such as citizen science, metadata, digital libraries, and web-based interoperability protocols. In terms of future research, Iwould like to investigate the various dimensions of breaking down barriers in how scholarship is performed, validated, and disseminated; between novices and experts (citizen science, or better stated, participatory scholarship), between formal and informal publication, between peer review and crowd sourced recommendation systems. This interest is based on the belief that the solutions to our critical problems rely on removing the wall around what we call scholarship and integrating into it the contributions from the billions of human sensors who are enabled by ubiquitous computing.
