Dario Taraborelli

I am a social computing researcher and open knowledge advocate based in San Francisco. I run research at the Wikimedia Foundation the non-profit organization that operates Wikipedia and its sister sites. Wikimedia Research is a team of scientists, UX researchers and engineers using data to understand and empower millions of readers and contributors who interact with the world's largest encyclopedia on a daily basis.

My work focuses on the behavioral and social aspects of collaborative technology. I am interested in studying the principles governing online collaboration and peer production and the design of systems and programs to accelerate the discoverability and reuse of scientific knowledge by the general public.

I was trained as a cognitive scientist and in a past life I worked on perceptual theory, cognitive architecture and the relation between action and perception

In my spare time I write code or digress on TeX and typography
