Dave Tomar, Managing Editor

Inflection Magazine explores higher education topics in general, often through the lens of scholarly impact. We look at what academic influence means, its risks and benefits, and how measuring influence can help us assess the true impact of both scholars and institutions.

From the student journey to the educator’s mission, from the researcher’s quest to the professor’s body of work, Inflection is always looking for new ways to examine real-world data using the powerful machine learning tools that power AcademicInfluence.com.
