My research program examines the use of high technology in public policy change efforts and organizations, with particular attention to those that deal with social welfare issues.  I and my colleagues have studied (1) high technology adoption by  advocacy organizations and (2) the context of high technology use in public policy (particularly e-government and e-democracy, community informatics,  nonprofit technology use and social factors influencing technology use in public policy decision-making).    I am currently work on applications of data and data science in a variety of areas including civic technology and public interest technology.

There are other things that I look at as well including nonprofit management, international social and economic development, Appalachian development and environmental issues. These tend to complement my central focus by providing additional context for my work.
