Information Science

Samantha Dalal is a second-year PhD student in the Information Science Department at CU Boulder. Her broader research examines algorithmically mediated work, specifically the impacts of this type of work on laborers’ identity formation processes, well-being and ability to collectively organize. She uses mixed methods to identify how workers cope with algorithmic systems and how these systems can be better designed to support their work practices. She is currently partially funded by a Community Based Research Fellowship from CU Engage that supports her research in developing data narratives for local Colorado rideshare and delivery drivers.
