Hi there, I'm Diana

I’m a doctoral candidate in the Department of
Information Studies at UCLA, researching
factors
that influence how people engage
with information. I consult with organizations on
information ethics, management, and strategy.

What I do

I provide evidence-based information strategies to
academic, corporate, and government organizations.

Research

My lifelong interest in knowledge and decision making has focused on the evaluation, classification, organization, communication, and interpretation of information, and motivates my work in the fields of behavioral science, finance, higher education, information studies, journalism, law, leadership, management, medicine, and policy. Check out my research.

Teach

This fall I taught Information & Power at UCLA. Last year, I taught Information & Society. In addition, I designed a new course on privacy and surveillance for undergraduate students in the University of California system, and am an active contributor to the development of an undergraduate information studies major curriculum at UCLA. My students have asked for a forum to continue our discussions. I'll be setting this up in January. Join us.

Consult

I help organizations create, plan, and implement strategies to achieve a variety of management objectives. Devising tailored programs for social media outreach, supply chain management, information systems redesign, product development and testing, data management architectures and practices, and workforce education and training has provided me with a broad and deep perspective across industry sectors, customer segments, and media channels. Let's talk about your next project.
