I'm a PhD student at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, in Minnesota, USA. In addition to being a student I've been working as a research assistant at the GroupLens Research lab since autumn 2008. My research area is task recommendations in peer-production communities, which means that I study how we can use recommender systems to suggest things to do to people. One of the tools used to study this is SuggestBot, a bot that will suggest articles it thinks you'd like to edit. I took over SuggestBot in 2010 and now maintain it and try to further develop it. It's currently available in four languages: English, Portuguese, Swedish, and Norwegian.
Outside of academia I'm an amateur guitarist, squash player, and in-line skater.
