Hello. I am the Research Manager at CivilServant, a nonprofit that collaborates with online communities interested in using the tools of social science to help their community thrive (in whatever way its members defines "thrive"). We currently are exploring two research projects with Wikipedia language communities which you can read about here (and which I welcome inquiries about!).
I use this user account to post and update information about our CivilServant projects. I have another user account - juliakamin - which I use when contributing about non-CivilServant matters (although all contributions before June 26, 2018 were made with that account).
I am also playing around with a research guide which I hope may grow into a resource for online communities and researchers interested in how to improve online interaction and engagement.
