"I am delighted to work with Executive Vice President Applegate, colleagues and staff at Indiana University on issues of critical importance," Massey said. "I feel privileged to be involved with university-wide programs and projects that enhance a culture of excellence relative to discovery, learning and engagement."

She received her doctorate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in decision sciences and engineering systems. Her research interests focus on technology-based service innovation, computer-supported collaborative work, e-health and IT implementation.
