Research Interests

My research is mostly behavioral or organizational. I have some interest in design science and design theory research but have not done much of this research myself. My own interests are in the following areas:

Information Systems Analysis and Design

  • Understanding analysis and design practices in industry
  • Conceptualizations of technological and organizational systems and domains

IT and Environmental Sustainability

  • Design Theory for Green Information Systems
  • Using Information Systems to make organizations more sustainable

IT-enabled Business Transformations

  • Large-scale changes to organizations due to new information technologies
  • Impact on IT innovations on work processes and individuals

Research Methodology

I have used a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods, but most of my own research is quantitative in nature (experiments and surveys). Many studies of my own contain (at least some elements of) mixed method designs.

  • Quantitative methods and analysis (Survey and Experiments)
  • Positivist and interpretive case studies
  • Mixed method research

Knowledge Boundaries

I do not have strong expertise in philosophical matters or grounded theory research. I also do not possess deep knowledge in econometric or other purely quantitative data analysis (e.g., social network analysis or data/process mining).
