Announcing CIPR Senior Research Fellow: Dr. Rina Ghose
The Center for Information Policy Research welcomes Dr. Rina Ghose as the 2012-2013 Senior Research Fellow.
Dr. Ghose is an associate professor in the UW-Milwaukee Department of Geography, with research interests in Critical GIS/GIS and Society, which aims to critically examine the intertwined relationships between GIS and society through the lens of various social theories. Specifically, Dr. Ghose's research examines ethical and legal issues related to "big geographic data" systems (such as GPS and RFID systems), as well as concerns of equitable access to GIS systems and data for citizen participation and activism.
Some of Dr. Ghose's recent publications and presentations include:
- 2012. Ghose, R. “Qualitative GIS in Urban Justice Research”. Paper presentation at the International GIScience Conference, Columbus, Ohio, 18-21 September.
- 2012 Mukherjee, F. and Ghose, R. “Exploring the Complexities of Community Engaged GIS”, International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research. Vol.3, no. 4, 87-102.
- 2012 Day, P. and Ghose, R. “E-Planning through the Wisconsin Land Information Program: The Contexts of Power, Politics and Scale”. International Journal of E-Planning Research, vol. 1, no. 1, 75-89.
As a Senior Research Fellow at CIPR, Dr. Ghose will collaborate with CIPR Director Dr. Michael Zimmer on research projects projects related to GIS and society, especially focused on the ethical and policy dimensions of "big data" within the GIS context.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Ghose at her October 19 lunch presentation on "Bridging the Geospatial Divide through Public Participation GIS". Details here.
