Gabriel Mugar

Syracuse University
PhD Candidate and Researcher
Boston, MA
I am a researcher and activist exploring the intersection of technology, media, and community building. My work spans investigations of community building strategies in online citizen science and peer production projects to building opportunities for youth to create alternative media outlets that contend with the negative stereotyping of their communities in mainstream media.
I am a PhD candidate in Information Science at Syracuse University and a research affiliate at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and Harvard University. I am the founder of Press Pass TV Inc, a Boston based youth media organization.
