Second, as a Contributor to the Credibility Coalition, she participates in the development of an indicator schema for reliable information and the testing of application in news articles.
Overall, Dr. Sehat's work has focused on the intersections of computing and democratic life, whether dissertating in German history, developing International Space Station software, or working on projects like the bibliographic Zotero (zotero.org), the New Orleans Research Collaborative (nolaresearch.org), and ELMO (election monitoring and more at getelmo.org).
