Casey Fiesler is an assistant professor in the Department of Information Science (and Computer Science, by courtesy) at the University of Colorado Boulder. Armed with a PhD in Human-Centered Computing from Georgia Tech and a JD from Vanderbilt Law School, she primarily researches social computing, law, ethics, and fan communities (occasionally all at the same time).

08.28.18 I wrote a blog post for CSforALL about Barbie’s journey through computing: “Tech Barbie’s Backstory: How she went from “math is hard” to robotics engineer”
08.27.18 It’s a new semester, and I’m teaching a brand new research-based class on the topic of online fandom!
08.17.18 Super excited about a new project that is funded by the National Science Foundation! I’ll be working with three other faculty members in our department to develop computational tools to help scale inductive, qualitative methods.
07.25.18 I’m quoted in a Wired article about the ethics of Dropbox providing data to researchers.
07.22.18 The Daily Camera interviewed me, and has a really nice write-up of my history and consulting work with STEM Barbies.
