I am an Associate Professor and Department Head of the Department of MIS at the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business. I received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Information Systems from Georgia State University, a Diplôme d'Enseignement Supérieur Spécialisé from l'École Supérieure des Affaires de Grenoble (France), and an M.B.A. from l'Université Laval in Québec (Canada).

My earlier research focused on the organizational change induced by information technologies and information systems, such as integrated software packages and open source software. More recently, I have been interested in investigating the relationship between information systems on organizational culture and identity, and I've also researched how information systems can play a role in support of environmental sustainability (Green IS / Energy Informatics).

I have authored articles published in many journals, such as Organization Science, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, Journal of Management Information Systems, The Academy of Management Executive, Information Technology & People, Journal of the AIS, and many conference proceedings.

My teaching interests include the design and management of databases, R, business process management, and qualitative research.
