Research Information:
My research interests currently include information security and privacy, specifically the implications of both for managers in the eBusiness environment. I am specifically looking at the role of security policy as the vehicle for managing information security-related risks to the organization. I began this line of research through involvement with the Center for Education, Research and Information Assurance (CERIAS) at Purdue. I also study various machine learning topics, including genetic algorithms, reinforcement learning and text mining for business analytics.

I am a faculty member in the MIS area at the Krannert Graduate School of Business. I finished my PhD in 1998 at the University of Florida in what is now the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management.

Personal Information:
I was born in Omaha NE but lived in Florida (Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Gainesville) for 15 years. I moved from Gainesville to West Lafayette after joining the faculty at Krannert in 1998.
