Interests: Web Science

Kristine is an incoming Ph.D. student working in the Tetherless World Constellation where she hopes to continue her research at the intersection of technology, information and policy. Her past research includes: online political discourse and civic engagement; human rights; information, communication, technologies and IP/copyright online. She also serves as Communications Director for a non-profit advocacy group, PolitiHacks, which lobbies on behalf of the start-up community in Washington, D.C. She is also an active board member for the Alliance of Internet Freedom PAC and has advised on several upcoming U.S. Congressional campaigns. Prior to joining RPI, Kristine worked as Deputy Legislative Director for Rep. Eddie Lucio III (TX-District 38) in Brownsville, Texas. She also held a position as a Media Policy Researcher for the New America Foundation in Washington, D.C. in 2010. She received her Bachelor's in Journalism and her Master's in Media Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. When not at her computer, Kristine prefers hiking, running or indulging in Netflix.

I have started a new blog on Technology & Policy which can be found at here.

Project CO-PI

Health Data Challenge (HealthData)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness and Jim Hendler
Co Investigator: Kristine Gloria
Description: An infrastructure for large-scale collaboration around aggregation, generation, and publication of health-related Linked Data.

SPP Project LogoSocial Practices (SPP)
Principal Investigator: Jim Hendler
Description: The overall goal of this project is to explore and establish a better understanding of privacy in this highly-networked world. This page features the tools and workflow needed to accomplish such a task. We argue that while much has been written and discussed about privacy in various domains (e.g., law, psychology, economic behavior, security, etc.), it remains unclear what exactly is the privacy problem? Our aim is to reframe our own understanding of privacy by moving away from these traditional disjointed compartments of knowledge. Moreover, given the complexity, we advocate this research question as an exemplar for the value of combining efforts between human and machine. This project features tools, workflow(s) and best practices we've developed and implemented to accomplish such a task. This is and will be a work in progress. Any comments and or feedback are welcomed. Please email Kristine Gloria at glorim@rpi.edu for more information.
TW LogoTWC Web Observatory (WebObservatory)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: Jim Hendler
Description: The Web Science Research Center at TWC RPI is working with other members of the Web Science Trust to create a global "Web Observatory". The global movement toward Open Data and transparency have successfully motivated the release of very large institutional and commercial data sets describing social phenomena, economic indicators and geographic trends. This proliferation of data represents great opportunity for researchers and industry but this data abundance also threatens to make it ever more difficult to locate, analyse, compare and interpret useful information in a consistent and reliable way; a situation which can only get worse unless we can help stakeholders perform useful analysis rather than drowning in a sea of data. A global Web Observatory will offer an institutional framework to promote the use of W3C and other standards in the development of Semantic Catalogues to globally locate existing data sets, Collection Systems to gather new global data sets, and Analytics Tools and methodologies to analyse these data sets.
Web Science Research Center (WSRC)
Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Co Investigator: John S. Erickson
Description: Web Science is the study of the World Wide Web and its impact on both society and technology, positioning the Web as an object of scientific study unto itself. Web Science recognizes the Web as a transformational, disruptive technology; its practitioners study the Web, its components, facets and characteristics. Ultimately, Web Science is about understanding the Web and anticipating how it might evolve in the future.
