Jonathan T. Morgan
My first edit to Wikipedia was in 2006. I've been performing gnomish edits since 2008 as Jtmorgan.
Areas of Wikipedia that I've studied include discussions around controversial article topics, Wikipedia policy , new editor engagement, and the editor decline. I have also performed design research on other online collaboration systems, like this one.
I am a voracious and omnivorous reader, and a passionately amateurish musician. In my (ever-diminishing) spare time, I also enjoy trail running, kayaking and a good game of racquetball.
I started working with the Foundation during the 2011 Summer of Research, where I worked on several exploratory research investigations focused on new editor participation patterns(1,2), and WikiProjects (1,2). As a Wikimedia Research Fellow, I helped design and launch the WP:Teahouse, a new user peer-support hub on the English Wikipedia. Info on how Teahouse came about, and why it is the way it is, available here.
