I am a Senior Research Scientist working in the area of collaborating-software systems. I am a member of the Knowledge Discovery Laboratory.

Research Interests

I am exploring issues in combining software systems and individuals to form effective collaborating processes and organizations. I am particularly interested in complex, dynamic settings where people and advanced software entities work together in structured, yet highly adaptable, ways.

Current Research Areas

Collaborating Software Systems — Creating new forms of software-entity interaction and coordination by extending the collaboration mechanisms of blackboard and multi-agent systems.

Oranizationally Adept Agents — Developing agents that adjust their behavior when given organizational directives and, most importantly, are able to determine when such directives become ineffective and proactively adapt to better achieve organizational objectives.

Live-Representation Process Management — Developing distributed process and resource-centric management and execution technology with continual downstream forecasting that supports human managerial oversight and control.
