Steven King is an associate professor of Emerging Technologies in the School of Media and Journalism and has a joint appointment in Kenan-Flagler Business School. He runs Kenan-Flagler Next, an innovative initiative focused on using emerging technology to change higher education, and he runs the Emerging Technology Lab which is inventing new ways to present news and information. Also, he assists both the United States and foreign governments in solving difficult problems in times of crisis. During the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, for example, King worked directly with the ministry of information in Liberia to create a data visualization dashboard to enable better decisions for fighting the disease.
