Vitali Mindel has been appointed assistant professor in the Department of Business Information Technology at Virginia Tech’s Pamplin College of Business.

Mindel is one of nine new full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty members at Pamplin this fall. Their addition reflects the college’s commitment to hiring faculty to further strengthen its teaching, research, and business outreach, particularly in areas concerning business analytics, innovation and entrepreneurship, and sustainable global prosperity.

Mindel received his Ph.D. in computer information systems from Georgia State University in 2018. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from Georgia State in 2012.

His research examines the sustainability and governance of decentralized online information systems and the role of technology in improving both clinical and administrative health care operations.

His health-care-related research has been published in the Journal of the Association for Information Systems and the Journal of Management Information Systems. His work on decentralized information systems, which led to the development of a novel theory related to information commons and emerging technologies, was published in MIS Quarterly.

Mindel was hired as part of the university’s efforts to strengthen faculty expertise in data analytics and decision sciences.
