Research & Teaching Interests

Professor Dias’s research interests involve the design and use of information systems that support group and interorganizational information sharing and collaboration.

Martin is particularly interested in improving organizational performance and legitimacy through enhancing the design and implementation of interorganizational information architectures. Accordingly, his teaching has covered the use of information systems in business process management and improvement at the MBA level, and both introduction to management information systems and use of emerging information technology at the undergraduate level.
