Corey is an academic researcher in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) and human-computer interaction (HCI). His research examines the behaviors among people and technology in online peer production communities (e.g., Wikipedia and virtual citizen science) with a goal of designing system features to support learning, collaboration, coordination, and enhance motivation. Corey’s recent focus is on broadening access to and participation in peer production through novel approaches to technology design. These approaches include centering the data and information needs of marginalized persons through participatory design techniques. Corey teaches a data science course with a focus on research design and ethics. In Fall 2021, Corey will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in information technology and introductory data science for the Information School.
