I am a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I am interested in the production of collective action among professionals in International Development. To this end, I will be studying the organizing processes of KM4Dev members over the next 5 years in order to better understand how the interaction networks within an international online community assist in the maintenance of this communal good. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
