Nice comparison by ReadWriteWeb. I wish they had included Zoho also.

I accepted faculty position at University of Utah

Filed under: Econometrics,Research,Teaching — Rohit Aggarwal @ 5:47 pm

I have accepted tenure track Assistant Professor position in David Eccles School of Business, University of Utah. IS program at University of Utah is growing rapidly. All throughout the country enrollments in IS are down but at Utah enrollments are increasing. IS faculty at Utah such as OliviaPaul and Gautam are really strong in data mining. They have also done a lot of work in recommendation systems. My research tool kit comprises applied statistics, particularly econometrics, network analysis and game theory. You can find a sample of my work here. Our research tool kits are complementary and I am excited over the collaboration possibilities.

Faculty is very vibrant and active at Utah. For instance, they are organizing “2008 Winter Conference on Business Intelligence“, which is a forum for exchanging research ideas/perspectives among IS researchers and business executives. In addition to being a platform for interaction, this forum also gives a good opportunity to enjoy skiing and snow-boarding. I look forward to attending the conference for both reasons :-).
