Favorite Research Topics
Dr. Rose’s research interest is in investigating how people rationally apply technology to improve productivity and how it mediates human behavior. His research focuses on how work is becoming increasingly technology-mediated and how this powerful force of change is reshaping human interactions and relationships in the office. In 2021, he published an article that deconstructs the intrinsic capabilities of digital spreadsheet technologies and reveals how they are used in practice to reproduce and produce power relations in modern social organizations. His 2022 article demonstrates how the recent rapid technology shifts in society are influencing ways of thinking about the nature and meaning of education (discourses) that are engaged in an antagonistic tug-of-war over truth.
