Biography


Dr. Calloway grew up in beautiful Colorado. Sheis currently Professor of Information Systems at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University. She earned her PhD and her MA in Management Information Systems at the New York University Stern School, with a minor in Interactive Telecommunications form the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Her current research interests focus on assessing interactive digital literacy in students from accounting, information systems and computer science. This work has recently been published in the Global Journal of Accounting and Finance, and the Journal of Accounting Information. Her research also focuses on the use of Computer and Information Technology to support sustainability initiatives that improve the lives of people and includes integrating interactive web creativity into curriculum and system design.

Before becoming an academic Dr. Calloway worked as a Systems Programmer for ITT World Communications in New York, as a NASA subcontractor in Cape Canaveral Florida, and at Chevron Research Corporation in California. Dr. Calloway did her undergraduate work at University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of California at Berkeley, where she worked with the Advanced Research Projects Agency. The ARPA project became DARPA, supported by the Department of Defense. The ARPA project worked on the development of multiprogramming and multithread systems.

Dr. Calloway is also a photographer, where she explores the fascinating connections we all have with the natural world and how these connections let us understand our day to day life.
