Charles M. Schweik

Professor of Environmental Conservation, UMass Amherst

I am a social scientist working to understand Internet-based collective action and online commons-based peer production. Over the last decade, much of my research has focused on the study of open-source software communities and the socio-technical systems and governance structures that support these systems of co-production.
