How do individuals make sense of emergent technologies in the workplace and what role does organizational culture play in these processes? How are novel technologies folded into existing workflows and how do the two co-evolve over time? What are the organizational dimensions that impact how people come to trust and rely on new technical capabilities? These are the kinds of questions that motivate my research - interdisciplinary in nature, my work centers on investigating the development, implementation, and adoption of emergent technologies in the workplace, and draws on perspectives from information systems (IS), computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), human-computer interaction (HCI) and technology policy.
I earned a PhD in Information and Computer Sciences from University of California, Irvine, where my doctoral work examined the development and adoption of data analytics from an organizational perspective and was funded by an IBM PhD Fellowship, an Achievement Rewards for College Scientists (ARCS) Fellowship, and a fellowship from the U.S. Dept. of Education. In addition to the PhD, I also hold an MS in Information from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and a JD in Law from Southern Methodist University.
