I am a Lee Professor of Information Systems at the College of Business at UNLV. I am the current Director for the Graduate MIS program at UNLV. I am teaching security management (MIS 770), data management (MIS 766) and e-commerce strategy (MIS 764) at the graduate level. I also teach in several other academic programs on campus.

I graduated from the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh with a PhD in Business, emphasizing in Management Information Systems. During my years there I specialized in human-computer interactions, security, trust and distrust and in large infrastructure project management.

Prior to graduating from the University of Pittsburgh, I spent several months working for the Information Systems Security Research Center (ISSRC) at the University of Oulu, Finland. My work focused on explaining why individuals fail to engage in secure behaviors, and how management interventions could be better targeted to improve such behaviors. I was able to make connections with many international and Finnish organizations, and institutions in China, which are also engaged in these projects. I returned to Oulu to defend my dissertation with the ISSRC / University of Oulu and obtained a second PhD in MIS, emphasizing in security, from the University of Oulu.

My research interests include trust and distrust, e-commerce, human-computer interaction, security and privacy. I have published papers in these areas in Management Information Systems Quarterly, Journal of Management Information Systems, Information Systems Journal, Journal of the Association for Information Systems, and several other research-niche specific outlets. I have also presented papers at the International Conference on Information Systems, AMCIS, HCI International and HICSS.

I am a current Associate Editor for ISJ, the AIS Transactions on HCI, and for HCI and Security tracks at ICIS, AMCIS, and ECIS and the Managing Editor for the AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction. I am currently an officer in the AIS SIG on Human-Computer Interaction  and am an active reviewer for many IS journals and conferences.
