Justin Longo (@whitehallpolicy) is the Cisco Systems Research Chair in Digital Governance and an Assistant Professor in the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Regina. 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, his current research focuses on the social, organizational, and political implications of advancing technology.
