Gerald has published in the fields of information systems, socio-technical, enterprise systems, business process change, smart cities. His research interests include organisational decision-making and understanding human and technology interaction. His current research focuses on technological change, with the purpose of shifting our thinking away from the deterministic technology-centred perception to a people-centred information-led perspective that ensures that the technical, social, environmental and organisational aspects of a system are considered together to deliver better value to organisations. This involves using socio-technical approaches for exploring the diffusion of technology, the adoption of new systems and transformation of processes to improve operations and performance.
