Research

I am primarily a qualitative researcher exploring the management of connectivity and digitally enabled environments—such as virtual teams and online communities—with an emphasis on their implications for traditional management practices.

Over the last 10 years, I have been engaged in research into virtual teams, and specifically issues of creativity, innovation, leadership, subgroups and wellbeing within this context. Further, I was one of the main researchers on the Digital Brain Switch project (2013-2015) which examined how connectivity influences the management of work-life boundaries. More recently, I have initiated three exciting projects focusing on different types of online communities—in the healthcare, higher education, and refugee context respectively.

At present, I have a number of forthcoming (or under review) papers in all of the aforementioned areas in eclectic journals in the fields of information systems and organization studies.
