My current research interests include: the use of IT/IS to support decision processes, knowledge management, enterprise systems, technochange, IT management and governance, design and redesign of e-business, and health information systems. I have a keen interest in the use of critical realism in IS research and design science research in IS. My research has been supported by national as well as international research grants. I participate in national and international projects related to my research interests. I am currently, for example, involved in the FP-7 project SUPPORTING LIFE (Supporting Low-cost Intervention For disEase control, €3.7 million) which is a project in the “Low-cost interventions for disease control in resource poor settings” program):
