I teach and conduct research in the area of organizational communication. Specially, I am interested in studying knowledge management through the development of social capital, and the adoption and usage of information and communication technology. My ultimate goal is to integrate findings from organizational behavior and information systems, and to develop and test new social science theories that advance our understanding of knowledge management.
