Thomas Meservy is an Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems at the
University of Memphis. He graduated with his PhD in Management from the University
of Arizona in 2007.
His research interests include software development tools and methodologies, large
group collaboration, and Individual evaluation of information. His dissertation focused
on creating and validating systems to augment human capabilities in automatically
detecting deception by observing nonverbal behavior. His research has been published
in scholarly journals such as Data Base, Group Decision and Negotiation, Communications
of the AIS, IEEE Software, IEEE Computer, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation
Systems, and IEEE Intelligent Systems.
In 2001, Tom graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Management and
a Masters of Information Systems Management. Since the late 90's Tom has worked as
