CIS FACULTY

The faculty contributing to the Communication and Information Sciences PhD Program reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the program. CIS Graduate Faculty are appointed tenure track faculty from the four partner programs, and may serve as advisors to CIS PhD students, dissertation committee chairpersons, and inside dissertation committee members. CIS Cooperating Graduate Faculty and CIS Affiliate Graduate Faculty may also serve as inside dissertation committee members for CIS PhD dissertations.

For the full list of possible dissertation committee members, please see the Office of Graduate Education web page, and choose Communication and Information Sciences Doctoral program. More info on forming the dissertation committee is to be found here.

Interests: My research addresses data governance, policy, and ethics related to big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Things (IoT). I am PI of an NSF-funded grant addressing one the grand challenges of this big data era − how we can harness health data resources for societal good amidst many competing claims on the value to be derived from these data and the substantial risks for individual privacy and security. I also explore the governance of AI and personal health information (PHI), assessing the increasing challenges to governing the PHI essential for advancing AI/machine learning innovations in healthcare. I have participated in several U.S. National Science Foundation events related to privacy and cybersecurity (via the Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology) and the future of broadband.
