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
Virtual Teams
Crowdwork
Technology Mediated Teams

2) Human Robot Collaboration
Teamwork with Robots
Human Autonomous Vehicle Interaction
(see https://mavric.si.umich.edu/)

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.
