My name is Maurice Jakesch.

I’m Maurice Jakesch.

I’m an Information Science PhD candidate at Cornell where I study how people assess online content reliability.

Specifically, I ask how and why people’s assessments of AI-generated content and political news are often misguided. I then design machine learning systems that support users’ judgments of accuracy and authenticity. My work is funded by the German National Academic Foundation and I’m a fellow at the Cornell Tech Digital Life Initiative.
