Modelling behaviour on Wikipedia

Hello fellow Wikimedia researchers! I am currently working on a research concerned with modelling user behaviour on Wikipedia. The idea is to design a field experiment over a random sample of Wikipedians in order to examine their risk preferences and define (dis)utilities that will be used in a utility-maximisation model.

Importantly, one of my main goals is to promote the idea and attract other interested researchers from the academic circles. I have already submitted an abstract that got accepted for the biennial Foundations of Utility and Risk Conference 2020 and my future plans include presentation of the concept at other research conferences (including Wikimania 2020).

You can visit the project page of the research on Meta. The research will benefit from your comments, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time.
