I am an Associate Professor of Management in the Economics Department at
the City College of New York, and a Fellow at the Colin Powell Center
for Policy Studies. In the broadest sense, my research examines how
individuals search for and share knowledge to accomplish work. More in
particular, I am interested in understanding how innovations are
diffused through knowledge networks within and across bureaucratic
organizations, as well as how information and communication
technologies are used to support processes of knowledge sharing and innovation. Currently, I am studying the collaboration behavior of biologists working in university labs, the referral patterns of primary care physicians, and a network of practice among DNA forensic scientists.
