Current Research Projects:
I design large session group laboratory experiments (40-50 or more simultaneous participants). These are run during normal class periods and/or as part of normal class curriculum. The experiments include:
  1. A version of the beer game (a.k.a. beer distribution game), which we use to examine cognitive and collaborative influences on supply chain decision making.
  2. A group development exercise, which we use to examine the impact of collaborative elements on decision making processes in task-oriented groups.
  3. An ethical decision-making exercise, which we use to examine individuals' ethical decision making process and the influence of group interaction on ethical decision making.
  4. An on-line auction simulation.
ODU has graciously provided me with an old workstation to use as a server to host the experiments here. I hope it doesn't crash, but so far so good.
