Josh is an Assistant Professor at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies. He received his Ph.D. in computer science from Brandeis University in 2008. Following his degree was a post-doctoral fellow and research scientist at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, where he served as chief architect for the MIT Climate Colab (https://www.climatecolab.org/). Josh studies collective intelligence in socio-technical systems. He draws on his training in cognitive science, human computer interaction, and computer-mediated group decision making to investigate how to design sustainable systems that benefit those who use them as well as society more broadly. He also draws heavily on complex systems theory to understand patterns of stability and change in socio-technical systems and focuses on both social dynamics and knowledge production in online communities. Much of his current work considers how social technology can influence the formation of peoples’ beliefs, and in particular beliefs that are motivated by misinformation.
