  • My research interests lie where Information Systems meet Human Computer Interaction. More specifically I am really motivated towards investigating human aspects of information systems development (e.g. communities of practice), effects of computer supported cooperative work in software engineering (e.g. distributed team working), computer mediated communication (e.g. distance and e-learning) and Information and Communication Technologies (e.g. Internet computing and e-commerce).
  • Effects of computer supported cooperative work in software engineering
  • Human aspects of information systems development
  • ICT and Computer mediated communication
