Dane is doctoral candidate studying the implementation of health information technology in hospital settings. His research interests also include the issues around the adoption and use of information systems and other information and communication technologies for development (ICT4D). Prior to being in the doctoral program, Dane earned his B.S in Information Technology and Psychology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2008. He also earned his M.S in Information Management from the school of Information Studies at Syracuse University in 2011.
Broadly speaking I am interested in the strategies used to adopt and integrate information systems into the routines of communities and public-sector organizations. My interests also revolve around the deployment of ICTs in under-served communities. Specifically, I am interested in theorizing and developing methods for improving the high failure rates associated with large scale technology projects aimed at providing public value and bridging local instances of the digital divide.
