The /r/science community is the largest science discussion platform on the internet with over 18 million subscribers and tens of millions of monthly pageviews. As a moderator of this subreddit, I help establish community policy and guide scientific discourse.

I implemented a system to track and assess the performance of AMAs in order to better understand the reach of the program and to guide future decision making.
