Congratulations to Heidi Hess von Ludewig who successfully defended her dissertation on May 5th, 2014. Her dissertation was entitled “Networked Creativity: Understanding the Process and Effect of Interpersonal and Networked Interactions on Workplace Creativity” and was chaired byJason Swarts. The rest of her committee included Elizabeth Craig, Susan Katz, and Chris Mayhorn from the Department of Psychology.
Dr. Hess von Ludewig began her studies in the CRDM program as a part-time student and full-time IBMer, but not long after becoming ABD she completed the program. Her encouraging completion time is good evidence of the hard work she put into her fine dissertation.
