Robert and Sara Lumpkins Associate Professor in Business Analytics
BiographyDr. Hong Guo studies emerging phenomena in IT by characterizing key design features of such systems (e.g., mobile platforms, digital games, product review systems, etc.) and examining firms’ corresponding strategies. She is also interested in economic analysis of IT policy issues such as net neutrality and public safety networks. Hong’s research has been published in top business journals such as MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Manufacturing & Service Operations Management, and Production and Operations Management. She joined the MIS Quarterly editorial board as an associate editor in 2017. Hong teaches analytics courses including data exploration and visualization, quantitative decision modeling, process analytics, and statistics in business at Notre Dame. She won the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C. Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2017 and the James Dincolo Outstanding Teaching Award for Undergraduate Teaching in 2013.
