For his countless contributions to the field of information systems, Professor Alok Gupta, Carlson School senior associate dean of faculty, research, and administration, received the LEO Award for career achievement from the Association for Information Systems (AIS).

The award, which is the highest honor given by AIS, recognizes outstanding scholars who have made a global impact on the discipline.

As the Curtis L. Carlson Schoolwide Chair in Information Management, Gupta’s research focuses on economic engineering of systems—where system design explicitly considers incentives of participants—as applied to a variety of transactional systems from the Internet, real-time databases, B2B systems, and e-commerce.

Gupta was also part of two research initiatives from the Carlson School which were recognized with the 2021 INFORMS Information Systems Society Design Science Research Award. Gupta’s research on flower market auctions shared the award, which is one of the top in the field of information systems, with the COVID-19 Hospitalization Tracking Project led by Professor Pinar Karaca-Mandic; Associate Professor Soumya Sen; Dr. Archelle Georgiou, an executive-in-residence; and PhD student Yi Zhu.
