I have been an Assistant Professor in the Department
of Management & Information Systems at Kent State
University since Fall 2012. I received
my Master’s degree in MIS, as well as my MBA, from the University of South
Florida in 2003, and earned my Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of
Georgia in 2009. Prior to coming to Kent State, I was an Assistant Professor in the School of Management at Bucknell
University for four years. I currently teach the undergraduate Systems Analysis & Design course (MIS
34068) at KSU, and am the faculty advisor for MISA,
the Kent State student organization for CIS majors
My research focuses primarily on IS habits, resistance to new technology adoption, and the interplay between IS habits and organizational routines.
I am currently listed among the top 100 IS researchers publishing in the AIS Senior Scholars Basket of 6 journals for the time period of 2009-2012 (representing the 4 years since defending
my dissertation). Altogether, my work has been published in MIS Quarterly,
European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of the AIS, Journal of Organizational Computing and Electronic
Commerce, and Communications of the ACM. I have also presented my research at the International Conference on Information Systems, Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, Academy of Management, and Association for Consumer Research conferences, and was a participant in the 2007 ICIS Doctoral Consortium.
I am currently a 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 recently served as an associate editor and session chair for the “Global and Cultural Issues in IS” track at the 2012 International Conference on Information Systems.
I was also honored with the 2012 Best Reviewer
Award from Information Systems Research.
I enjoy fossil collecting in my spare time, and have received a number of prestigious awards

have two Florida fossil mollusk species named after me (Attiliosa gretae and
