I am an Assistant Professor at School of Information at University of South Florida. My primary research combines method-development for computational analysis with the application of these methods for government information organization and evidence-based policy decision-making. My ultimate aim is to systematically organize government data, making it amenable to analysis, as well as providing analytic tools and use cases. My CV is available 2_CV_LoniHagen_10.12.
