Recently, Johanna Goertz' work focuses on information aggregation in large (general) elections, and small elections as committees or juries. If not all voters can communicate with each other, the voting rule has to aggregate the information of the voters. Her work contributes to answering the questions of when and with which voting rule this works best.
