Outstanding Associate Editor, 2018


Research Interests

I conduct field research, mostly on the organizational or individual level. Much of my own research explores the intersection of people, technology, and work. I often ask questions of design, representation, and/or process.

My current interests include:

  • Systems analysis and design practices in the digital age
  • Digital entrepreneurship in new ventures
  • Digital innovation and transformation in incumbent organizations
  • Digital technologies and the management of processes and routines
  • Digital solutions for sustainable development

Research Methodologies

I am comfortable with most quantitative and qualitative empirical methods, including mixed method and design science approaches. I am also competent in the use of process mining, simulations, and other computational data analysis methods. I do not possess deep knowledge in machine learning, econometrics, or other industry- or market-level analytical models.

Preferences

I like problem- and phenomenon-driven papers. I prefer papers that explicitly conceptualize the role of digital technology within socio-technical assemblages. I welcome both empirical and pure theory papers. I am a proponent of the open science movement and welcome papers that explore its potential and implications for IS. I also welcome papers that prompt researcher reflexivity.
