My primary research area examines how and why virtual collaboration alters teamwork and how virtual collaboration can be used to facilitate more effective teamwork. My research involves multi-level analysis examining both individual and team behaviors in virtual environments. Specific areas: diversity, social networks, inter-team relationships, shared and unshared mental models, knowledge integration and internal and external team controls. My secondary research area examines how social networks influence individual and team adoption of information and communication technologies.
