My research in this area has aimed to understand the interaction between digital technologies and collaboration in small teams. This research has two primary foci. The first is on the nature of digital collaboration technology itself and how it shapes collaboration. The second focuses the structural features of teams (e.g., how members are distributed across time and location) and how they shape digitally-enabled teams’ ability to collaborate effectively.
