Kaylea Champion is a PhD Candidate in Communication at University of Washington. She studies how people cooperate to build public goods like GNU/Linux and Wikipedia, including what gets built and maintained (and what doesn't), who participates (and who is excluded), and how teams succeed (and fail). Prior to graduate school, she worked in IT as a consultant, system administrator and project manager. She holds an MS in Computer Science from the University of Chicago. A Linux user since 1994, she enjoys tromping through the woods, smashing goblins, and cooking for a crowd.
