Research Interests:

My primary research interests can be broadly described as the behavioral and psychological issues pertaining to information systems at both the individual and organizational levels. Much of my research has been in the area of technology use across work-life boundaries (e.g., cross-domain interruptions), with specific emphasis on individual and organizational factors that influence after-hours work connectivity and the work-life consequences of such connectivity. I am also interested in the “dark” side of technology use (e.g., social media addiction).

The theoretical foundations of my research primarily stem from Psychology and Organizational Behavior. As such, I am comfortable serving as associate editor for papers that employ a psychological or behavioral perspective to understand how people use information systems of different purposes and attributes, the influencing factors, and the resulting outcomes.

Research Methods:

The research methods used in my research strongly focus on surveys and experiments in both a field and a laboratory setting. Although I continue to draw on my training in behavioral research, I am open to new methods and techniques that can be utilized in a survey or experiment setting. I do not have expertise in qualitative research, econometrics, or design science.
