Presentation

Design and innovation are the leitmotif in my work that focuses on examining the crossroads of information, technology, and people. My research combines both soft and hard methods to advance theory and knowledge about how information technologies are developed, applied, managed and consumed in the context of human organizations. I am particularly interested in research of enduring consequence and value partnerships with business organizations as well as the community at large.
