Reputation systems have been my main research and development interest in the last few years. After three years at Google, I am back at UC Santa Cruz, where I am continuing work on reputation systems, ranking, and crowdsourcing. I am also helping establish a research operation at UCSC Silicon Valley, with the goal of providing a better link between UCSC and Silicon Valley. I have written extensive software, both at Google, and at UCSC, being one of the main authors of the WikiTrust codebase. I am also knowledgeable in developing for the web, hosting, scalability, and architecture (site architecture) issues. I have consulted for several start-ups, and most recently I am providing technical and scientific advice to VoiceBase.
