The NSF has awarded me a grant of $495, 677 over the next three years to study how members of the public are using technology in innovative ways to form more productive partnerships with nonprofit organizations. The research will focus on learning more about the sociotechnical practices of virtual volunteering, mobile giving, and online advocacy.
