Describe your research in about 200 words.

At a high level, I am interested in collaborative communication technologies and the concomitant digital transformation that occurs. Most recently, I have been working on digital disparities in telemedicine. Specifically, the argument is that investment alone in broadband infrastructure is not enough to encourage adoption of telemedicine, but rather a multitude of factors impacting task-technology fit will also affect patient adoption of telemedicine.


What’s the most interesting thing you have learned from a student?

The most interesting thing I have learned from a student is that beliefs about the link between the MMR vaccine and autism persist in spite of scientific studies to the contrary. Over the past few years, I have learned that scientific fact is not necessarily perceived as truth by everyone.
