An NSF INSPIRE project on which I'm a co-PI (along with Carsten Østerlund) was just funded! The project award 15-47880, titled "INSPIRE: Teaming Citizen Science with Machine Learning to Deepen LIGO's View of the Cosmos". The project, joint with Northwestern University, Cal State Fullerton and the Adler Planetarium, will develop a novel citizen science project to classify glitches from the LIGO gravitational wave detector.

On 18 Sep 2015, I gave a short talk at the National Academies in a Symposium on Enhancing the Effectiveness of Team Science, in response to the chapter on virtual work. You can see the whole symposium here, my talk here and the questions and answers here.
