Keynote Bios

Staša Milojevic
Staša Milojevic is an Associate Professor in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, a core faculty of Cognitive Science program, and a fellow of Rob Kling Center for Social Informatics at Indiana University, Bloomington. Her research endeavors to elucidate the dynamics of science as a social and an intellectual (cognitive) endeavor by approaching science as a heterogeneous system comprising of people, ideas, documents, instruments, institutions, and policies situated in an historical context. Specifically, she strives to produce comprehensive, yet straightforward models based on theoretical and empirical findings from a wide range of fields (science, technology, and society (STS), science of science, information science, network science, economics, sociology, philosophy, history, etc.) in order to uncover and explain the fundamental principles that govern contemporary science. She is a co-founder and past chair of ASIST SIG METRICS. She serves on the editorial boards of Scientometrics and BioScience. She is an Associate Editor for the Frontiers in Scholarly Metrics and Analytics. She received her PhD in Information Studies at University of California, Los Angeles.
