Research Interests

My research focuses on digital health, organizational theory, and collaborative innovation processes. I am particularly interested in research that seeks to address social and organisational problems, linked with the use of digital technologies. I have employed a wide variety of theoretical perspectives which include practice theory, adoption and diffusion of IT innovation, theories of time and theories of knowledge in my work.
