Connie Moon Sehat · July, 2017

I joined Global Voices in September 2016 to oversee NewsFrames. Currently, I direct a project called NewsQ, which seeks to elevate quality journalism through online ranking and recommendation systems.

My work has focused on the intersections of computing and democratic life, whether dissertating in German history, developing International Space Station software, or working on projects like the bibliographic Zotero, the New Orleans Research Collaborative, and ELMO (election monitoring and more). Most recently, I have worked for The Carter Center, Emory University, and The Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.

I like thinking about data and culture, and am inordinately fond of British murder mysteries, small plastic objects, and at the moment: music mashups on SoundCloud.
