Bonnie Brinton Anderson
Bonnie Brinton Anderson has been at BYU since receiving her PhD from Carnegie Mellon University in 2001. She earned a BS and MAcc-IS from the Marriott School and worked as a consultant at Accenture. She currently serves as director of the Master of Information Systems Management program.
In addition to teaching classes on information systems analysis, user experience, and implementation, Dr. Anderson is engaged in research on the intersection of neuroscience (fMRI, EEG, eye-tracking, etc.) and behavioral information systems security. She and her colleagues use these neurophysiological tools to examine not only how computer users respond to computer security messages but also why users respond the way they do. Her work is funded by the National Science Foundation and the White House BRAIN Initiative as well as by a Google Faculty Research Award. She has presented her work internationally at conferences, workshops, and companies.
Dr. Anderson served a mission in Tokyo, Japan, and, having served in a wide variety of Church callings, she is now enjoying her current roles as ward missionary and Relief Society pianist. Her hobbies include sports, playing the harp, traveling, family activities, and the occasional shark encounter. She and her husband, Rob, have four daughters.
