Six McMaster professors have been named 2022 University Scholars, an award that recognizes the achievements of mid-career researchers who are considered global leaders in a number of diverse research areas and academic disciplines.

Recipients have distinguished themselves as international scholars and have demonstrated a commitment to the discovery, communication and preservation of knowledge, excellence in education and pedagogy, and to serving local and global communities.

Each University Scholar will receive $15,000 each year of the award (up to $60,000), provided by the provost and vice-president academic and the recipient’s dean.

Dr. Maryam Ghasemaghaei, associate professor, Information Systems

Maryam Ghasemaghaei, the chair of Information Systems in the DeGroote School of Business, studies how organizations can apply advanced technologies — such as big data analysis and artificial intelligence — to make better decisions.

She also works with researchers from other disciplines to study the key factors that impact the process through which leaders successfully pursue new strategic initiatives.

Ghasemaghaei’s multidisciplinary training in marketing, industrial management and information systems allows her to bring a diversified perspective to her research and teaching.
