Full researcher profile


My research focuses on the future of work in global organizations -- how to design thriving collaborations for better employee health, creativity, and innovativeness in global virtual work. Tradigional work design theories have not kept pace with changes in modern day work. My research advances work design literature by creating a better understanding of how to design and lead thriving global virtual collaborations – situations in which knowledge workers are at a distance from other team members and must rely on communication technology to facilitate their interaction across distance, language, and cultures.
