My current research focuses on the use of technology to enhance new forms of scientific activities involving amateurs, such as for example, hacker culture and citizen science. I place my current research on citizen science at the intersection of citizen science and information technologies. I have a specific interest in the influence of gamification on what citizens do in this type of activity.
