Professors Julia Adams and Hannah Brueckner (Associate Dean of Social Science, NYU-Abu Dhabi) have been awarded a two-year National Science Foundation grant for collaborative research on “Wikipedia and the
Democratization of Academic Knowledge.” Graduate students Jesse Einhorn and Tim Malacarne are collaborators on the project. The investigators are exploring gender-specific patterns of representation
of scholars and scholarship, and one of the project’s goals is to contribute to improving quality and reducing bias on Wikipedia. Congratulations to Julia and Hannah!
