Research

On this page you can find information about my current research interests and activities.


Research Interests

My research agenda is focused across two main information systems (IS) research streams: 1) information systems (IS) offshore project management and 2) sustainable e-Commerce business practices.  I feel my research activities serve a unique role in supporting my academic and teaching interests.  Research provides the opportunity to satisfy the academic’s constant search for knowledge and to aid in teaching.  My research activities tend to highlight a practitioner viewpoint, which I feel is a great match that allows me to share my research activities in the classroom.  I feel research should be conducted to be applicable to the business environment and serve as a bridge between theory and practice.  My practitioner focus on IS offshore project management and e-Commerce business practices allows me to incorporate my findings into my teaching for the benefit of my students.  My research efforts fit well with my courses (IS-401, IS-411 and BUS-755), where project management and e-Commerce discussions are often enhanced by sharing my research findings.  Overall, the goals that I have for my research activities are to aid my teaching by keeping students up to date with new developments in the constantly evolving IS field and to improve business operations by sharing my research findings with practitioners.
