Research Interests

My research has mostly focused on the individual adoption and use of workplace information systems. Specifically, much of my research has explored the role of affective elements (moods, emotions) in technology use and implementation, and the relationship between individual identity and technology. I am interested in how new information technologies in the workplace are linked to people identifying themselves as professionals and their emotional wellbeing, which, in turn, can influence how likely they are, for example, to resist or support new IT systems. My emerging research area is increasingly encompassing a broader interest in how ubiquitous digitalization, including technological automation and augmentation, are changing not only professional identities and wellbeing, but the nature of work itself.

Current interests include:

  • Digital transformation of work
  • Emerging forms of digital work, such as platform work and crowdwork
  • Implications of work digitalization on emotional well-being and work meaningfulness
  • Algorithmic management and its consequences in the workplace
  • Datafication and its consequences in the workplace

Research Methodologies

My methodological expertise includes:

  • Qualitative methods
  • Field studies
  • Ethnographic techniques
  • Case studies

I am also comfortable handling papers that employ mixed-methods approaches.


I am particularly interested in papers that draw on unique, revelatory and rich empirical data and are able to synthesize empirical findings into both theoretically valuable insights and implications of practical (societal) significance. I prefer papers that develop one main idea and do it thoroughly and well. I am also interested in interdisciplinary papers that span IS, management, and/or psychology. I also welcome papers that introduce topics or genres that are relevant for MISQ readers but may be considered unusual, risky, or avant-garde. For such papers, I would not want to force-fit the papers into a conservative mold but would instead try to find ways to support the novelty being introduced.
