I am interested in the interactions between humans and technology, and the value that these interactions bring to organizations. I study this broad phenomenon from three main perspective: (1) the interaction perspective: how people interact with information systems and what they bring into this interaction that creates variance in use; (2) the information perspective: how people find, share, and assess information from information systems; and (3) the sourcing perspective: how can people support the creation of new information systems?
