You can find the latest version of my CV here. My research is at the intersection of analytics and healthcare. My teaching philosophy is to build a strong theoretical foundation that can then be applied and reinforced by doing. I believe service is an integral part of academia, I am an active member of the AIS community and I am involved in the Doctoral Students Activities Subcommittee (part of AIS), whose goal is to help students be successful in their studies, job searches, and first years as academics. I am the Secretary in the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on Systems Analysis and Design (AIS SIG-SAND). I was featured in the AIS Insider “10 questions with Arturo Castellanos” and I was a finalist at eMerge Americas -the largest tech conference in South Florida- presenting PatMiner -a patent analysis platform.

Research

Information is generated at a much faster pace than the ability of individuals and organizations to consume it efficiently. The challenge is not to collect more information, but to utilize it effectively in order to solve business problems. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Information Systems (CIS) at Baruch College (CUNY). I am passionate and curious about technology, healthcare IT, and analytics. My research interests are related to Systems Analysis and Design (SAND) topics such as conceptual modeling, information quality; healthcare IS; and Design Science Research (DSR) -analytics.  I teach an introductory course on Information Systems (CIS2200) and a Data Warehousing for Analytics course (CIS4400) at the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College. I’ve also taught a Business Analytics course to undergraduate students in the College of Business at Florida International University.
