I study quality and innovation in cyber-physical, cyber-human production systems using data science and informatics.
My work helps quality managers, executives, and educators address the political, economic, social, technological, and design changes required by the evolving IoT. I use quality informatics, data science, design science, and applied AI/VR/AR to make this happen. I'm particularly interested in neurodiversity, and learning how autistic thinking can be applied to develop a more productive, inclusive, and engaging next-generation human/machine hybrid workplace. This require new approaches for designing for quality attributes, creating and utilizing analytics, developing alternative economies (e.g. sharing economy, gift culture, cryptocurrency), and cultivating alternative societies (e.g. postmodern higher ed, Burning Man).
As of January 2017, I'm the Editor of the Software Quality Professional journal. Please consider submitting your article to us! Most submissions are 2000-6000 words and deal with quality for both academics and practitioners as it specifically relates to software-intensive systems (e.g. Internet of Things (IoT) – Ethics, Law, Security and Quality, Software Testing, Agile Methodologies, Project Management, Software Quality Management, Security Engineering & Testing, Mobile Applications, Women in Technology, Requirements Engineering, Big Data & Analytics (in relation to quality), Usability and User Experience, DevOps & Continous Delivery Software Process Improvement, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Cloud Computing, Automotive Software, Medical Software).
