Andrea WigginsHi, I’m Andrea Wiggins.

I’m a Postdoctoral Fellow with DataONE at the University of New Mexico and Cornell University, working out of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, NY. I currently study public participation in data-intensive scientific collaboration and issues related to data management and technologies.

My research centers on design and evolution of sociotechnical systems for large-scale collaboration. My dissertation focused on the role of technologies in supporting public participation in scientific research. I’m interested in how ordinary people become involved in meaningful real-world research through citizen science projects, and how technologies can help.
