I have a wife, three children and many animals. Our boys are involved heavily in soccer. Our daughter (and I) enjoy horseback riding and barrel racing competition.


My research interests include information sharing in and across organizations and virtual collaborative activity. My research focuses on the combination of social, political, environmental, policy and technical aspects as they affect the use of information systems, information sharing and the organizing and governance of these systems especially in sensitive environments.I have special interest in the study of virtual collaborative efforts. Through participation in the Wireless Grids Lab I have begun with others to investigate these activities through the Wireless Grid Innovation Testbed, which is a virtual research consortium involving academic, government and commercial partners on local and international  levels.  We were recently awarded a National Science Foundation Partnerships For Innovation (PFI) grant for a “Wireless Grid Innovation Testbed.”  We examine implications of wireless grids technology on nomadicity, operation and governance of virtual interaction and collaborations.I have been working on an NSF Grant; “Collaborative Research: Design Principles for Effective Interorganizational Public Safety Response Infrastructures,” investigating public safety collaboration. The focus here is on the identification of critical institutional governance structures and processes that support successful operation and implementation of collaborative systems.  The work involves insight regarding implications on broader IT-enabled public and private collaborations as well.I am interested in studying how the technologies and human elements interact with and impact each other in various contexts. Additional research interests include information assurance, cyber security issues, pattern or anomaly detection within public and private information sources.

My teaching style is very interactive.  I bring in many real world experiences and draw from the experiences of my students to engage them in the course material.  I believe that using actual examples drawn from the personal experiences of the students themselves is most valuable.

I have been teaching as an Adjunct Instructor for Syracuse University in the School of Information Studies since 1993 and for the Whitman School of Management since 2008. I have experience in both online and face to face instruction for graduates and undergraduates.

I recently participated in the Syracuse Entrepreneurship Classroom; learning strategies for bringing entrepreneurship into cross-campus programs and instilling this spirit in our students. They are taught to look for opportunities in all aspects of their lives, both personally and professionally.

I have always been excited about teaching and have a strong concern for the individual success of my students.
