My research concerns decision support systems (DSS). DSS is the area of the information systems discipline that is focused on supporting and improving managerial decision-making. In terms of contemporary professional practice, DSS includes personal decision support systems, group support systems, executive information systems, online analytical processing systems, data warehousing, and business intelligence. Most of my research has been on personal decision support systems (i.e. systems that are developed by a systems analyst for the support of an individual manager). I am particularly interested in behavioural decision theory and evolutionary development.
