My research over the past 15+ years has focused on technology acceptance and use in organizations and society. Broadly speaking, my research focuses on how and why employees use technologies in organizational settings and what the consequences of such use are. Similarly, my work on technology in society focuses on how and why people use technologies in various settings, American homes to e-government services to villages in India, and what the consequences of such use are. This web site serves as a source of information about completed research and a window into some ongoing work. The list of published papers is available here and the papers are also organized by specific topic areas.
The rest of
this page provides information about collaborators with whom I have
published or accepted papers.
Over the years, I have had various collaborators who have made key contributions to many of the papers. One collaborator who also had a great influence on my work, based on his early work and also his counsel, has been Fred Davis, who is a great friend and my colleague at the University of Arkansas. Some of the early papers benefited greatly from the general advice of Gordon Davis, my dissertation advisor at the University of Minnesota. I would not be where I am today without the exceptional counsel of Fred and Gordon. My peer collaborations immediately after graduate school were instrumental in my own intellectual development include Sue Brown (U of Arizona), Mike Morris (U of Virginia), and Cheri Speier (Michigan State University), all of whom have become great friends over the years. I have enjoyed collaborating with many others, including
Arun Rai (Georgia State University), Phil Ackerman (Georgia Tech), Ritu Agarwal (U of Maryland), Sanjay Gosain (Capital Group), Anne Massey (Indiana University), and V. Ramesh (Indiana University).
my more recent work is with my past and present PhD students: Dr. Hillol Bala (currently
on the faculty at Indiana University), Dr. Likoebe Maruping (University of
Louisville) and Dr. Srini Venkatraman
(currently on the faculty at Coastal Carolina University) have moved my
research in new and rich directions related to business processes, teams
and Internet abuse respectively. Dr. Tracy Sykes (currently on the
faculty at Australian National University) and Dr. Xiaojun Zhang
(currently on the faculty at Hong Kong University of Science and
Technology), my former PhD students at the University of Arkansas, are both leading our
research on social networks and knowledge management respectively.
