Research Interests
I am interested in exploring the social aspects of Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) in organisations, particularly the role they have to play in shaping (and being shaped by) organisational culture.
My current research is concerned with understanding the manner in which medical practices may come to be reconfigured around the introduction of new information technologies, and the associated social and organisational implications of such changes for the delivery of healthcare services.
In previous work, I sought to develop an understanding of the interplay between forms of organisational control (in the shape of performance appraisal/evaluation systems) and managing heterogenous knowledge creation processes in a knowledge-intensive environment, i.e. the relationships between different ways of knowing and different ways of doing.
