"My research interest is information privacy and security issues in business and e-commerce. I have been working with financial economics, and a risk valuation approach known as "value-at-risk." I have explored economic and financial perspectives on organizational strategy and decision-making for investments in IT and business processes that are used to protect consumer privacy. I presented my work with Professor Rob Kauffman and his colleague, Professor Ryan Sougstad, at the 42nd Hawaii International Conference on Systems Science in January 2009. I am revising the paper so it can be submitted to a major IS journal." "Another article that I worked on during 2009 is coauthored with Professors Kauffman, Marilyn Prosch, Ben Shao and Paul Steinbart. I submitted that paper to a special issue of the American Accounting Association's Journal of Information Systems, for a special issue on IS research perspectives. My paper provides a theory-focused survey of data privacy research." I also have other research experience that I obtained at the W. P. Carey School with Professor Uday Kulkarni on building a framework for knowledge-intensive business processes. This was presented at the International Conference on Decision Sciences in Global Enterprise Management in 2009. I also wrote an essay in one of my doctoral seminars on open innovation and the open source business model. This work is just about to be submitted to a journal."
