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 public policy. Check out my research.

I direct the UCLA IS Lab, developing resources and programming to support the curriculum of the Department of Information Studies. The best parts of my job at UCLA entail student mentorship and collaboration with colleagues and industry partners on data-driven innovation in research and scholarship.

Outside UCLA, I help organizations create, plan, and implement strategies to achieve a variety of management objectives. Recent work as Senior Advisor on Data Ethics for EDM Council has been particularly fulfilling. As founder of the Information Ethics & Equity Institute (IEEI), I develop tailored continuing education and training programs for data ethics; data management architectures and practices; designing for equity, diversity, and inclusion;  intersectionality; and workforce development across industry sectors, customer segments, and media channels. Let's talk about your next project.
