Biographical Sketch

I have recently taken up the responsibility of the Director of the new 3D printing lab at the College, a first of its kind lab in a business school. 

I'm Researching the role of technology in enabling collective action, co-operative production, information sharing , sensemaking and collaborative work.

Currently I am applying learning from this to structuring environments that enable students to learn in online /blended environments, with a focus on peer-learning, that can scale. I am also exploring the "gamification" of education to create more engaging environments.

I am also interested in social network analysis and its applications to organizational networks, student networks, people networks

You can find out more about my teaching/research interests on my personal website,  and connect with me  on Linkedin or Twitter
