Research Interests

My research interests relate to innovation in digitally-enabled small- (e.g., teams) and large-scale collectives (e.g., communities and crowds). I am interested in the processes by which such collectives innovate, the role of digital platforms in facilitating innovation and the role of algorithms in orchestrating innovation across a variety of problem domains. I have recently developed an interest in researching digitally-enabled open innovation, digital transformation, and digital entrepreneurship.

Research Methodologies

In my research I have employed econometric analysis, social network analysis, experimental design and survey research methods. I have also conducted qualitative case studies. Generally, I am comfortable handling manuscripts that employ a breadth of methodological approaches. My own training is in quantitative research methods; but I am also comfortable handling manuscripts employing qualitative research methods. I am also comfortable handling papers that employ mixed-methods approaches.

Preferences

I have a strong preference for research that is strong in theory (research-methods papers naturally being an exception). Whether advancing native information systems (IS) theory or contextualizing non-IS theory to the study of distinctive aspects of IS phenomena, I look for research that advances our understanding of theory and of IS phenomena.
