My current research interests include virtual communities, open source software, global sourcing of IT & IT enabled services, and the diffusion of information technology innovations.

As part of my research/consulting activities, I have interacted with several firms including Daimler Chrysler, EDS, Covansys, Thomson-Gale, Kelly Services, Handleman, Cap-Gemini, PWC, EMC, GM, Ford, St. Joseph Mercy, Beaumont Hospitals, & ITC Infotech. I have taught in executive education programs and currently serve as the director of an Executive MBA  program with a focus on the health care industry. My publications have
