Since I joined the DDIS group as research assistant in September 2013, I am studying the topic of crowdsourced collaborative data analysis. Specifically, I am fascinated with the idea of enabling diverse crowds with limited coding skills to participate in end-to-end data analysis projects. If possible, this idea will make data analysis more accessible and substantially lower the costs of data-driven research. Drawing on statistical methods and organizational psychology, I am designing a method to facilitate collaboration among diverse crowds for data analysis. Such research can be seen as a next frontier of Citizen Science.
Previously, I studied at the University of Ben Gurion, Israel, in Department of Industrial Engineering and Management with a focus on information systems. My Master thesis was in the field of data quality.
My research interests lie in the fields of Crowdsourcing, Applied Statistics, Data Science, and Statistical Data Quality.
