I’m Maurice Jakesch.

I’m an Information Science PhD candidate at Cornell University where I study people’s reasoning about online content.

Specifically, I ask how and why judgments of AI-generated content and political news are often misguided. I work with mixed methods to explore the cognitive, social, and technical aspects of this question. I also develop systems that support people’s accuracy and authenticity assessments.

I’m a fellow at the German National Academic Foundation and the Cornell Tech Digital Life Initiative. You can visit me on Twitter or send me an e-mail. If you wonder how to pronounce my name, try [mo:ris ja:ke:sh].
