Tanja Aitamurto

I'm a social scientist, influenced heavily by engineering sciences. 

I examine the impact of civic technologies on human behavior and society. The contexts of my studies vary from journalism, democratic practices such as policy-making and voting to learning. The technologies that I'm examining include Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), large-scale online collaboration methods such as crowdsourcing and co-creation, and Machine Learning tools. 

I use a variety of methods in my studies, including NLP technologies for analyzing large unstructured datasets, controlled experiments, and qualitative analysis methods.

Basically, I'm a social scientist turned almost into an engineer. Engineering is like yoga or motorcycle riding: once you start you can't stop. I'm a postdoctoral scholar at the School of Engineering at Stanford.
