Keri Larson

  • PhD
  • Assistant Professor of Information Systems
  • Louisiana State University


    I am an assistant professor of Infomation Systems in the department of Information Systems and Decision Sciences at Louisiana State University (LSU). I hold a PhD in Management Information Systems from the University of Georgia and an AB in Law, Letters, and Society from the University of Chicago. Prior to entering academia, my career was centered in the IT industry, specializing in web programming, systems administration (Lotus Notes), database administration, and instructional technology.

    My primary research efforts pertain to the investigation of firm-level effects of social media. This work focuses on the contextual analysis of highly unstructured textual data, with the goal of tying social media exchange to organizational decision-making. My intent is to benefit business practice by providing managers the ability to measure (and therefore manage) the impacts of their firms' social media initiatives in a more meaningful way than is currently possible.

    My other research streams include the investigation of generative responses to innovation in healthcare (e.g., to EHR), changes in organizational identity brought about by IT/IS, and shared cognition among decision-making teams.

    I have taught, or teach, Data Management, Intro to Information Systems, Project Management, and Social Media and Virtual Communities in Business.
