Hi! I'm Paul André. I lead research for Workplace by Facebook. Previously, I worked on privacy and sharing.

Prior to Facebok I was at Carnegie Mellon, Microsoft Research, and University of Southampton. My work focused on awareness in a couple of different contexts: in identity and social engagement, or collaboration on complex artefacts. See projects for details.

Some of the projects we worked on in Facebook have been written up, including:

Missing CHI in Paris? Join us instead for CHI Sadness. Like Madness, but we're not crazy, just jealous.

Who Gives a Tweet accepted to CSCW 2012, with an Honorable Mention award. Written up at The Atlantic, Harvard Business Review and CMU.

Our 4chan paper won Best Paper at ICWSM 2011 (thanks to everyone who voted!) and is on Slate, HackerNews, Reddit, Rhizome, Waxy and Metafilter.
