Benjamin Kuo

I am pursuing a PhD in Management Information Systems with the Department of Information and Decision Sciences in the Liautaud Graduate School of Buisness at University of Illinois at Chicago. I have an MBA and Masters of Information Systems from Claremont Graduate University as well as a BS in Computer Science from Grinnell College.

Research Interests

 My current research focuses on online social networking in the healthcare context, specifically focusing on how privacy concerns affect the use of online health social networks at an individual level. For the past 3 years I have been working with the University of Illinois at Chicago as a Teaching Assistant for the Information and Decision Sciences undergraduate capstone projects course, acting as a mentor to the students and a liaison with our project sponsors.
