I am an associate instructor and doctoral student in the Operations and Decision Technologies department at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. I currently teach K201, a comprehensive and intensive course on Microsoft Excel and Access; I have previously taught Accounting Information Systems (processes and controls) courses to both accounting and information systems students.
My research interests include two broad areas: (1) collaboration (i.e., collective intelligence, computer-mediated communication, virtual group work) and (2) IS security. My research, which is primarily behavioral and quantitative, has been published or is forthcoming in MIS Quarterly, Communications of the AIS, Computers & Security, and Group Decision and Negotiation. I’ve also presented my research at workshops and conferences including the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW) and the Collective Intelligence conference.
I’m also currently working as the managing editor of MIS Quarterly Executive. In this capacity, I manage subscriptions, administer the journal website, provide customer service, and work with Editor-in-chief Dorothy Leidner on managing submissions. I am also in charge of producing each issue, which includes typesetting, formatting, author correspondence, and working with copy editors and printers.
I’ve served as an ad hoc reviewer for top academic journals, including MIS Quarterly, Journal of the AIS (JAIS), European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS), Information Systems Journal (ISJ), Information & Management (I&M), and Communications of the AIS (CAIS), as well as for numerous conferences (e.g., ICIS, HICSS, AMCIS, ECIS, PACIS). I won the Best Reviewer award at the 2012 IFIP 8.11 Working Group Dewald Roode Information Security Workshop.
I have previous work experience in IT training, IT support, management, accounting, and consulting with small businesses.
I am a graduate of the Master of Information Systems Management program at the Marriott School of Management, Brigham Young University, where I was part of the Ph.D. preparation track. I also graduated cum laude from BYU with a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems.
My beautiful wife, Kayleen, and I have two children – a girl and a boy. Outside of my research and teaching interests, I enjoy playing the piano, reading a good book, spending time with my family, and traveling to new places.
