Syracuse professor awarded NSF grant to study workers in the gig economy
from Syracuse University News
School of Information Studies (iSchool) faculty member Steven Sawyer was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study how people pursue work in the gig economy, and what challenges need to be overcome to make this kind of work successful for the workers that are doing it. Sawyer’s research will focus particularly on understanding how workers from disadvantaged backgrounds are prepared to participate in this quickly-growing arena.
