Research Interests
My research interests include use of inter-organizational information systems in supply chain management, supply chain integration, supply chain performance measurement systems, order commitment in supply chains, current trends in supply chain management. I have also conducted research in IS related topics such as business value of information technology, electronic medical record systems and use of IT in education and outreach. We conduct inter-disciplinary research involving supply chain management and information systems.
