My research agenda lies at the intersection of technical and organizational challenges in the design and development of software. The broad goals of my research are 1) to bridge the gap between organizational studies and software engineering, 2) to provide concrete, actionable insights into work practices to better design and develop software.

My teaching interests include Database (Database design, SQL), Information Visualization, and Information Technology Management.
