Rob’s research interest involves the impact of mobile technologies such as laptops, tablet computers, smartphones, and cellular telephones on the cultural, business and social behaviour and attitudes in the workplace. He examined how the use of existing mobile technologies and current practices are disrupting and changing the flow and structure of delivery and management of business content, and how meeting participant attitudes are changing.
