Research Centres, Laboratories and Exchange
CPA-Canada Accounting and Governance Research Centre (CPA-AGRC)
CPA-AGRC makes a significant contribution to the academic accounting field and helps shape the development of professional accounting standards and practices. Current research projects examine corporate governance, transparency and disclosure, risk management, sustainability reporting, accounting and control issues in family-owned firms and non-profit organizations, while a distinguished speaker’s series presents the latest insights from the field. The Centre is led by Professor Philip McIlkenny with support from CPA-Canada, the Telfer School and the University of Ottawa.
Centre for Business Analytics and Performance (CBAP)
CBAP has a mandate to explore the use of analytics as a means to improve organizational performance. Researchers focus on optimizing the use of data in the context of applied research that can deliver insights to partner organizations. Led by Professor Umar Ruhi, the centre has ongoing outreach activities connecting organizations with professors and students to better understand and improve analytic applications.
Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) Laboratory
The KDD Laboratory’s focus is on using large datasets to extract novel information and insights, with diverse applications in engineering, business, medicine and population health. Current industry and government funded projects apply big data analytics, data summarization, and stream data mining. Graduate students and researchers from multidisciplinary areas of computer science, engineering, and e-business collaborate under the direction of Professor Bijan Raahemi.
Marketplaces for Safe and Fair Trade (e-MP) Laboratory
Researchers in this program investigate the design, development, and usability of electronic marketplaces (e-marketplaces) as the main trade infrastructures of the digital age. Other related research questions being investigated include social commerce and IT supported B2B sales processes. This initiative is led by Professor Morad Benyoucef.
Mobile Emergency Triage (MET) Research Laboratory
Researchers in the MET Research Laboratory aim to provide computer-based support for a number of decision problems that occur at the point of care in a healthcare institution. The goal of this research is to create methodological and applied health informatics solutions that support healthcare practitioners throughout the patient management process. Researchers in health informatics and computing science work with practicing physicians under the direction of Professor Wojtek Michalowski.
Telfer Health Transformation Exchange (THTex)
The Telfer Health Transformation Exchange (THTex) is a meeting point for dialogue and learning between healthcare practitioners and health systems researchers. The Exchange is led by two Telfer professors: Dr. Michael Fung-Kee-Fung, Professor at the Departments of Obstetrics/Gynecology and Surgery at the University of Ottawa, cross-appointed to Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa; and Wojtek Michalowski, Professor in Health Informatics and Decision Support at the Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa.
