My research agenda lies in technical, organizational challenges in the design and development of Information Technology. My research has focused on how Open Source Software (OSS) systems evolve in relation to the way of work is actually done over time. The broad goals of my research are 1) to bridge the gap between organizational studies and software engineering, 2) to provide concrete, actionable insights about work practice to practitioners.

My teaching interests include Databases (Database design, SQL), Information Technology Management, Information Visualization (Analysis framework, Tableau, Data stroytelling), and Research methods (mixed-methods, set-theoretic qualitative case comparison (QCA)).
