Profile / Bio

I am a Research Fellow at the Wiki Education Foundation, a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute for Digital Government, and an visiting instructor at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst for the University Without Walls. I am also a founder and Managing Editor of communication +1. I believe that information should be free (as in freedom)and actively work to encourage Open Access. I have worked on a variety of projects to support this mission, from teaching with Wikipedia, to hosting editathons for Open Access Week, to founding the the above-mentioned journal which utilizes a share-alike license and is included in the Directory of Open Access Journals.
