Leila Bighash's research focuses on knowledge-sharing, organizing, and the development of information goods in different contexts, particularly in online communities and social media. She is also interested in how people, groups, and organizations resolve or take advantage of information asymmetries, examining these processes through the lens of evolutionary theory, signaling theory, network theory, transactive memory theory, and public goods and collective action theories, among others. She has been trained in advanced quantitative methods and has experience in experiments, surveys, and observational online data collection/analysis. She is a member of the Annenberg Networks Network research group. She received a BA in Political Science from UCF, an MA in Political Science from Rice University, and an MA in Journalism from CU-Boulder.
