I teach and conduct research in the area of organizational communication and intercultural 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 recent research has focused on examining how differences in communication styles may influence the effectiveness of intercultural collaboration and expertise sharing.
