I am currently an Associate Professor at the University of Alberta (Canada), Alberta School of Business, department of Accounting, Operations and Information Systems (AOIS).

In addition, I am an Adjunct Professor in the Humanities Computing Program within the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Alberta.

I earned my B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering from the Technion (Israel), and worked in IT project management for 6 years. My most recent industry position was Operations Manager for the software house Jacada. While in industry, I earned an MBA from the Technion.

After a career change, I returned to school and earned a Ph.D. in Management Information Systems from the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia (in 2004).

My research interests – broadly speaking – are in the areas of knowledge management and computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), and I employ a variety of research methods: from design science to behavioral research.

My research has been supported by local grants (i.e. Alberta School of Business, University of Alberta), funding from national granting agencies, and industry grants.


I strive to contribute to the larger research community through activities such as the review of research works (books, journals, various conferences, reviewing grant applications, and the organization of conferences. more...


My industry experience includes 6 years of IT project management. more...
