I am a lecturer of the School of Information Systems and Technology Management, The University of New South Wales. I obtained my PhD degree at the University of Queensland in November 2017. In 2018, my thesis won the ACPHIS (Australian Council of Professors and Heads of Information Systems) Best Australian IS PhD Thesis Award.

I undertake research in two areas. My first research area focuses on digital innovation and entrepreneurship. I have examined the enablement and the adoption of digital innovation in entrepreneurial and established companies. My second research area focuses on improving theories and methods in the IS discipline, specifically with a focus on critical realist research.
