Assistant Professor, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, University of Regina

Justin Longo is the Cisco Research Chair in Digital Governance and an Assistant Professor in the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Regina where he directs the Digital Governance Lab. He has a PhD in public policy and public administration from the University of Victoria (2013) where he researched the use of enterprise social collaboration platforms inside government policy analysis settings. Following postdoctoral work in open governance at Arizona State University and the GovLab@NYU (and continuing as an Associate Member of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Opening Governance), his current research focuses on the social, organizational, and political implications of advancing technology. From the impact of the “sharing economy” on social and governance arrangements, to the unanticipated consequences of policy analytics, the use of artificial intelligence as a supplement and replacement for decision making, new ways of organizing work, and the evolving relationship between citizens and the state, the profound changes of the digital era provide the foundation for considering the trajectory of our shared future.
