I am a professor of management at the Charlton School of Business in the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I received a Ph.D. from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University in Organizational Behavior. While there, i worked closely with business school professors but also those in computer science.
My research primarily focuses on group collaboration, specifically the ways in which technology influences the ways that groups learn and coordinate their work. I use the lenses of both social psychology and networks research to determine what the influence of the connections within a group are on their performance.
In my most recent research, I have studied the ways in which the communication structure a group uses influences their ability to coordinate and learn about one another.
