Research Interests

Sociolinguistics and Language Variation and Change — My greatest interest is with language and society and how mindset, identity, and other social, political, psychological, and technological factors impact communications and language change.  A synopsis of my Ph.D. dissertation entitled, Coherence, Convergence and Change: Dialect and Standard Language Use in Swabia, can be found here.

Global Mindset and Cultural Diversity — I’m very interested in exploring more about how individual mindset and identity promote cultural awareness, tolerance and acceptance of differences across cultures.

Global Technology and Organizational Design — I’ve spent decades studying global organizational design and technology architecture and how various models can facilitate and/or hamper organizational effectiveness.
