Research Interests

My research is situated in the domain of strategic human resource management (SHRM), which focuses on the relationship between organizational effectiveness and the management of people in organizations. Within this SHRM domain, I focus on studying how information technology is used to manage human resource management processes and how this affects individual and organizational outcomes. More recently my area of concentration in this broad domain has been focused on emerging technologies that include HR analytics, algorithmic HRM, and artificial intelligence.
