Kolina Koltai

Kolina Koltai is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for an Informed Public (CIP) at the University of Washington. She studies how groups' use of sociotechnical systems affects decision making and information behavior. She researches information-seeking behaviors, trust assessment of information (and misinformation), and decision making with a focus on when people dissent from the scientific mainstream (e.g., vaccine dissent). She specifically focuses on how social networking sites and digital communities interact with information behavior practices.

Koltai received her Ph.D. in Information Studies from the School of Information at The University of Texas at Austin. She has previously worked in HCI and user experience researcher positions in government and industry labs.
