About

I'm examining collective intelligence in several applications such as crowdfunding, crowdsourcing, and open innovation. The empirical contexts I'm focusing on are digital journalism, public policy-making and design. I am a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford Engineering, and also the Deputy Director of the Brown Institute for Media Innovation at Stanford. More about my work on my website: www.tanjaaitamurto.com
