I am a Professor of Management Information Systems in the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. I have previously served as Visiting Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. At UT Dallas, I teach courses in the MBA and Executive MBA programs, MS programs in MIS and Healthcare Management, as well as a PhD course for MIS doctoral students. My research and teaching interests focus on the measurement of information technology-driven productivity improvements in the healthcare sector. Specifically, my research seeks to evaluate the impact of health IT initiatives on the cost and quality of healthcare delivery. I have collaborated with researchers from the UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Dallas Fort Worth Hospital Council on several research studies related to development of predictive models for readmissions of congestive heart failure patients.
I have more than ten years of management consulting experience, most recently as a Principal with PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting. I have advised senior IT and business executives of Fortune 500 companies on a wide array of IT consulting projects. I have served as an Associate or Senior Editor at several prestigious academic journals. My research has been published in the major academic journals and has received more than 1,200 citations.
