Personal profile

Professional Information

Dr. Garg earned her PhD (2017) and MS (2013) in Computer Science from University of Zurich's Department of Informatics in Switzerland. She was affiliated to Communications Systems Group under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Burkhard Stiller. Her research has been previously funded under the EU FP7 Program - FLAMINGO, Network of Excellence. 

Research Interests

I am majorly interested to understand decisions users take while using emerging technologies such as Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, and how do these decisions vary amongst different categories of users and organizations. During my PhD I developed a trade-off-based decision methodology for adopting Cloud-based Services in an organization. My research revolves around evaluating technology use from socio-technical perspective to understand its complex relationship with the users and how individuals, groups, society and technology mutually influence each other. To examine this, my research integrates qualitative, quantitative, and computational analysis. My work draws and expands from various disciplines, such as Decision Sciences, Human Computer Interaction, Science and Technology Studies (STS), and Psychology.

Few specific research questions that I am currently exploring are:

  • How do users take decisions of using a technology to various degrees and in different forms, and how do these justification vary amongst different categories of users (differentiated by socioeconomic status, age, education, or development status of country of residence)?
  • Due to the increased adoption of Information Technologies, automation, and Artificial Intelligence in workplace, how are the decisions of unemployed workers such as gaining new skills through training, finding a job outside of their area of expertise, or moving to self-employment being taken.
