Hello, I'm Dario. I am a researcher in social computing based in San Francisco. I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in December 2010 as a research consultant and as of 2011 as a full-time analyst with the Foundation's Product Development team. Between 2011 and 2013 I mostly worked on product development research and supported different teams involved in the editor engagement program. As of 2013 I lead the Foundation Research and Data team. Until early 2012 I also helped coordinate Wikimedia's research outreach and research-related policies via the Research Committee. Prior to joining the Foundation I was a postdoctoral fellow at University College London and at the University of Surrey in the UK. I hold a PhD in cognitive science from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales.

My work at Wikimedia[edit]

The current focus of my work at the Wikimedia Foundation is on editor engagement research and experimentation. The following is a list of projects that I conducted or in which I have been significantly involved:

Slides from recent talks related to my work at Wikimedia can be found here. A list of my recent publications is available on my personal homepage.

My Wikipedia contributions[edit]

I have been a Wikipedia editor since 2004. As an open source and open science advocate as well as a TeX-addict, you may occasionally find me edit articles on open access and digital typography, but most of my contributions are about London in history and architecture (see for example: Smithfield, London ). Random love signals are filed here Original Barnstar Hires.png.
