Faculty

Our world-class faculty has expertise in a range of disciplines, from computer science, psychology, and engineering to anthropology, history, communications, and more. We come together to study and educate people about the interactions of people and information; the processes of managing and organizing information for meaning and use; and the impact of new technologies and behaviors on individuals, organizations and society.

Our faculty are recognized experts in their areas. They serve on multiple editorial boards, have recently held presidential positions in ASIS&T and ALA, and are among the most cited scholars in the information field.
