Carolina Alves de Lima Salge

Assistant Professor

Carolina A. de Lima Salge is an Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems at the Terry College of Business. Her research focuses on generating insights to improve social interactions with computer algorithms in ethical ways. Specifically, she is interested in (1) illustrating how bots disseminate information in online social networks; (2) generating theory on the use of conversational agents in an increasingly hyper-private web browsing environment; and (3) understanding and disentangling the complex nature of algorithmic transparency.

Dr. Salge has received awards for teaching and her research has been quoted by media outlets such as The Irish Times.

She is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish.
