The School of Information Studies (iSchool) welcomes new faculty member Radhika Garg to the tenure-track faculty ranks this semester.
Garg received her Ph.D. and Master of Science Degrees in Computer Science from the University of Zurich in Switzerland, and her Bachelor of Technology in Computer Science from the Mody Institute of Technology in Rajasthan, India.
She worked as a junior researcher for the Communications Systems Group at the University of Zurich before coming to Syracuse.
Her research interests include information science, economics, and the impact of regulation on public policy, business decisions and deployment, operation, and maintenance of network and communication technology. In her future research, she plans to explore the design, development, and application of novel analytical decision systems, including information and user modelling for understanding complex technologies and their ecosystems in the domains of healthcare, technology, network and service management, and energy.
“I am super excited to be part of the Syracuse iSchool, specifically because of the interdisciplinary work that it fosters,” said Garg. “I have always been an interdisciplinary and collaborative person, doing research in computer science, decision making, and its associated regulatory and policy issues, and I am looking forward to collaborating with faculty, staff and students on a variety of projects to understand, model, and predict adoption decisions made by users and organizations with respect to emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things and Cloud Computing.”
This fall, Garg will be teaching the graduate-level Cloud Management course (IST 600).
