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. More recently, I have examined the impact of visualized storytelling on increasing environmental awareness and motivating sustainabilty practices.
