‚ÄčResearch Interests
My research program focuses on the business value of IT in large institutional settings (the U.S. Electric Utility Industry and Healthcare Industry). Specifically, my program of study has focused on developing complementary competencies in the following areas: IT-enabled process innovation, HIT innovation, individual and group decision-making processes, socio-psychological and organizational behavior theories, theory development, and advanced research methods (i.e., structural equation modeling, hierarchical linear modeling, social network analysis, data mining, and econometric methods). 

As such, I have developed economic as well as the socio-psychological theoretical perspectives along with the methodological competencies required to examine IT phenomena from an interdisciplinary perspective to shed light on how IT innovations need to be designed, implemented, and utilized differently than other traditional innovations.
