Sora Park
Sora is a Ph.D. student studying Public Administration & Policy at the University at Albany's Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy.

What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I am interested in using qualitative methods to study the institutional change process around technological innovations and I was looking for a research opportunity that could expand my horizons. I was lucky to find out that CTG happened to be looking for someone with qualitative research skills.

What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
I had worked for the New York State Legislature for the past four years while working toward my doctoral degree in public administration at Rockefeller College. I learned a lot about the policymaking process as well as substantive policy issues at the state and federal levels.

What are your plans/goals for the future?
I'll continue deepening my knowledge and working toward becoming an established scholar in my research field.

How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
CTG will help me utilize and hone my research skills. I am sure that the project that I am working on at CTG will give me a fresh perspective on the use of technology in the public sector as well as how to tackle a research project with a team effort.
