About

I am a researcher in the Information Systems and Innovation Group, at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My area of research concerns everything to do with open and open innovation. My PhD focused on the dynamics of learning and organizing in open source collectives. For the last few years of my post-doctoral research I have concentrated on how, why, and under what conditions the public and private sector decides to adopt open source software and/or process.

Currently I am a Research Associate at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). I hold a PhD in Information Systems from the LSE. My thesis focused on the dynamic of learning and organizing in open source collectives. I was affiliated with the University of Limerick, where I worked on a number of projects, including the OPAALS project, with Professor Brian Fitzgerald at the Lero Research Centre. At the LSE I was Research Officer to Professor Leslie Willcocks, and was studying the relationship of open source to outsourcing, open innovation and open business models. I am also currently a visiting lecturer at the Warwick Business School. I am excited about my forthcoming co-authored book on the secondary adoption of open source by the public sector, published by the MIT Press. This is co-authored with Professor Brian Fitzgerald, Professor Jay Kesan, Dr Barbara Russo, and Professor Giancarlo Succi. I have published, and presented at all the main information systems conferences like ECIS, ICIS, AMCIS, HICSS, and my own own special interest group, the OSS conference.
