ALBANY, N.Y. (July 25, 2023) — The latest developments on University at Albany faculty and staff who are receiving research grants, awards and other noteworthy attention.
- CTG UAlbany was well represented at the Conference on Digital Government Research (dgo.2023), held July 11-14 in Gdańsk, Poland. Graduate Assistant Battulga Buyannemekh presented a paper co-authored by Meghan E. Cook, and CTG UAlbany Director J. Ramon Gil-Garcia presented two papers, co-authored by CTG UAlbany Researcher Aryamala Prasad, Research Director Mila Gascó-Hernández and former CTG UAlbany and Rockefeller College PhD student Qianli Yuan.
- An article in the American Journal of Public Health, cowritten by Rockefeller College Associate Professor Ashley Fox and her former doctoral student, Yongjin Choi, finds that alerting the public that men who have sex with men are most at risk for mpox increases support for stigmatizing policies, such as the cancellation of LGBTQ+ events. This increased stigmatization could trigger persecution, the authors say.
