I am currently an Associate Professor
in the Department
of Management & Information Systems at Kent State
University. I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in MIS, as well as
my MBA, from the University
of South Florida, and completed my Ph.D. in Business Administration at the University of
Georgia in 2009. I currently teach undergraduate Systems Analysis & Design (MIS
34068) and Database Management Systems (MIS 44043), as well as the doctoral level courses in Multivariate Statistics (MIS
74017) and Structural Equation Modeling (MIS 84266). I am also filling in as
coordinator for the undergraduate Business Experience and Internship course (MIS
44292) in Spring 2017.
My research focuses primarily on IS habits, resistance to new technology adoption, and the interplay between IS habits and organizational routines.
My work has been published in MIS Quarterly
European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of the AIS, Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic
Commerce, Communications of the ACM, Computers in Human Behavior,
and Drake Management Review. I have received several best paper and reviewer awards, including the
of the Year Award from MIS Quarterly, and the 2011
Reviewer of the Year Award from Information Systems Research.
I have been a long-time member of the AIS Special Interest Group on Adoption and Diffusion of Information Technology
(SIGADIT), and the ACM Special Interest Group on Management Information Systems
(SIGMIS). I have served as an associate editor for Information &
Management since 2014, and have also served as an associate editor for
several different tracks at the International Conference on Information Systems: "Global and Cultural Issues in IS" (2012),
"General IS Topics" (2013), and "Human Behavior and IS"
(2014, 2017). In 2014, I co-chaired the AMCIS SIGADIT minitrack,
"The Dark Side of Post-Adoptive Use."
In my spare time, I enjoy both fossil collecting and studying horse racing
history. I have published two papers in the field of invertebrate paleontology,
and have two fossil mollusk species named after me. For the past few years, I
have been traveling across the United States visiting and documenting defunct
racetrack sites dating all the way back to colonial times, and hope to one day
complete a book on these "ghosts of tracks past."
