I am an associate instructor and doctoral candidate in the Operations and Decision Technologies department at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. My research interests include two broad areas: (1) social aspects of information systems (i.e., collaboration, computer-mediated communication, virtual teams) and (2) IT security. My research has been published in MIS Quarterly, Communications of the AIS, and Group Decision and Negotiation. I’ve also presented my research at conferences such as the ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work and Social Computing (CSCW). I’ve served as an ad hoc reviewer for top journals and conferences, including MIS Quarterly, European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS), Information & Management, Communications of the AIS (CAIS), and the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS). 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.
