Nicole Schwitter


I am an honorary research fellow in the Department of Sociology. I previously completed my PhD in the department which focused on the online community Wikipedia. I was interested in the effects offline gatherings between Wikipedians have on their online behaviour, in particular in regard to their contribution, norm-enforcing and voting behaviour in the context of their social network.
