I enjoy teaching because it allows me to interact with students who have the potential to make the world a better place using technology. I continually innovate in my courses to ensure students enjoy the learning experience, learn the key concepts and skills related to information systems through real-world examples, have an opportunity to learn from each other, learn to present themselves as professionals, and most importantly, learn to use or develop technology to make a difference. WPI provides a learning environment that allows me to accomplish these principles with its emphasis in theory and practice.

In my research, I investigate effective ways that information systems and technology can support healthcare delivery transformation around the globe, because I believe that everyone should have access to the best care possible at an affordable price. My goal as a scholar is to conduct relevant, high-quality, high-impact research with integrity. I identify research problems that are interesting for scholars and relevant to practitioners. I apply both qualitative and quantitative methodologies in my research. My research expertise is in design and development of patient-facing health information technologies, specifically personal health records (PHR) and mobile technologies, and implementation and adoption of health information technologies (HIT), such as telehealth and electronic health records (EHR) in healthcare organizations.
