Alumna Jennifer King’s Dissertation Honored by iSchools Organization

School of Information alumna Jennifer King, MIMS 2006, Ph.D. 2018, was honored by the iSchools organization for her doctoral dissertation, “Privacy, Disclosure, and Social Exchange Theory.”

The iSchools organization announced that Dr. King is the runner-up for the 2019 iSchools Doctoral Dissertation Award, which recognizes the best iSchool dissertations of the preceding year. Nominations are solicited from the almost 100 information schools in the iSchools organization.

King is the Director of Consumer Privacy at the Center for Internet and Society at Stanford Law School, where she specializes in information privacy, technology policy, social computing, and human-computer interaction. King identifies as a social technologist who uses social science and usability methods to research, analyze and solve technology problems.

King’s dissertation explores how social structures affect an individual’s decision to disclose information. In particular, she examines the relationship between individuals and companies that they disclose personal information to. The work takes a novel approach to the analysis of personal disclosure, particularly through the varied research methods, including qualitative interviews and online surveys.
