Dr. Catherine Middleton holds a Canada Research Chair in Communication Technologies in the Information Society at the Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University. Her research focuses on the development and use of new communication technologies, with specific interests in mobile devices and fixed and wireless broadband networks. She is also interested in how Canadians use (or don’t use) the internet in their daily lives. Her research projects have investigated the use of ubiquitous communication technologies (like Blackberries) in organizations, the development of next generation broadband networks, competition in the Canadian broadband market, and Canadians’ internet use. She was the Principal Investigator for the Community Wireless Infrastructure Research Project and is the Co-Investigator on the Canadian Spectrum Policy Research Project. She leads the Citizenship theme in the Graphics, Animation and New Media Networks of Centres of Excellence project, and is the Vice-Chair of the Board of Directors of CANARIE, Canada’s Advanced Research and Education Network.
