About Name of Staff Member

Jeff began as Ph.D. student in the MIS program at the University of Memphis in 2010. Prior to arriving at UofM, Jeff worked in the automotive industry where he was involved with product application, design, development, and project management. As his career progressed, he transitioned into operations management and continuous improvement where he led multiple change projects and business process re-engineering efforts. In 2008, Jeff left industry and began to pursue his Ph.D.

While working on his Master's degree, Jeff involved himself with projects for the Department of Homeland Security, specifically in interoperable radio communications and portable network communications. Currently, his research interests lie in the area of human information behaviors, augmented reality, and gamified applications. In his present work, Jeff has conducted several studies using eye tracking as a physiological measure, investigating the effects of images during consumer information search.

While enrolled at UofM, Jeff had the honor of attending and participating in the 2013 AMCIS and 2013 ICIS Doctoral Consortiums. Additionally, he stands recognized for his distinction in teaching by receiving the department's "Excellence in Teaching Award". Aside from academics, Jeff is active taking photographs of urban Memphis's physical and social landscapes.
