Assistant Professor, DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY
Ali received his Ph.D. in Information and Decision Sciences from the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota. His research investigates the impact of emerging digital technologies on human behavior, organizations, and society, with a focus on electronic markets. The interdisciplinary nature of his research draws upon methods from machine learning, agent-based simulation, artificial intelligence, behavioral experiments, and econometrics. His research has been presented at major Information System conferences such as Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) annual meeting, Conference on Information Systems & Technology (CIST), Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems (WITS), and Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS).
