Research Interests and Research Subject Specialisms

Ever since 1998 I has actively been involved in Information Systems (IS) development related research with valuable experiences attained through fieldwork within applied research projects in UK. Research interests have encompassed pure IS areas as well as applied interests in electronic commerce, Business Process re-engineering, Knowledge Management and e-governance. My Doctoral work in companies in the UK, enabled development of a framework of analysis through the application of an emergent research paradigm. I am also interested in ‘success’ factors as well as engagement with ‘real time’ IS development.  Other research interest includes the collaboration with 4 other Universities within the North West to develop a web-based learning package for Schools and Colleges funded by the NWDA.
