Areas of interest
In the past, my research focused on teamwork with technology. However, as my interests have broadened a more accurate description would be to say that I now focus on the collaboration through and with technology.
The specific areas are listed below:
1) Online Collaboration
Technology Mediated Teams
2) Human Robot Collaboration
Teamwork with Robots
Human Autonomous Vehicle Interaction
3) Sharing Economy
Coordination and Cooperation through Digital Platforms
Trust in Digital Platforms
For a complete list of all my publications see:
I am currently accepting doctoral students in each of those areas.
