Research Interests
My research interest is in the area of information technology consumerization, which explores both positive implications and negative implications of technologies. A substantial body of my research is associated with information privacy, particularly the privacy issues invoked through social media usage. I have also investigated the business implications of privacy and security breaches across a broad spectrum of online contexts, such as electronic commerce, in-app purchase, and crowd-funding. More recently, I have started a research program on healthcare-related mobile technologies.
