McDevitt Information Systems (IS) Research Fellows work closely with the McDevitt Distinguished Chair in IS, Dr. Grabowski while conducting hands-on research in Information Systems, either on campus at Le Moyne or in the field. Graduated McDevitt IS Research Fellows (JP Rancy, Chris Rizzo, Trevor Onori and Danny Della Posta) also serve as mentors to the new Fellows. Fellows and their mentors participate in MIS 495/795, a Research Methods course with bi-monthly research seminars led by the McDevitt Distinguished Chair in Information Systems; in the seminar, Fellows present their research, collaborate on their findings, and discuss their progress. McDevitt IS Research Fellows also share their knowledge, skills and abilities with the wider community and represent the College on- and off-campus.
The research projects and the McDevitt IS Research Fellows pursuing the projects in 2017-2018 include:
Augmented Reality Technology Evaluation (Alyssa Crane, JP Rancy)
GE Next Gen Plant Installation and Commissioning Technology Assessment (Travis May, Sam Gangi)
Unstructured Data Challenges in Large-Scale Data Systems (Ventech Solutions) (Anthony Brock, Ayuen Gai)
Health Information Systems Evaluation (Greg Kelly), and
Impacts of New Technology Introduction in Safety-Critical Systems (Irfan Tihic, Sadina Mehmedovic).
Eligibility and program guidelines for Undergraduate Research Fellows in Information Systems vary each year based on the needs of the program. For more information, please contact Dr. Martha Grabowski, McDevitt Distinguished Chair in Information Systems (firstname.lastname@example.org).
