How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
In my research I investigate and draw design guideliness that support how to create and sustain online communities of citizen participation. To this end, I design interventions that integrate the guideliness and moderate/monitor them in order to understand what engages or disengages citizens from participating. The technology development was funded by nominet trust (UK).
