My major research interests focus on Electronic Service. I have particular interests in using theories in risk, trust, value co-creation, and technology adoption as the basis for empirical research and practitioner enquiry related to the design of E-service.
Currently, I am working on projects in investigating how the development of trust and value co-creation in social media affect purchase intention of online consumers, and how different design attributes of E-service website affect its adoption. I also conduct research on the E-government and E-learning adoption and green information systems and sustainable management.
