Corina joined The  University of Sydney in February 2010 from The University of Queensland, where she  has held an Associate lecturer position from 2004 until 2009.

Corina is currently  completing her PhD and undertakes research in the field of Enterprise Systems.  Her PhD thesis focuses on achieving Alignment between organisational  requirements and Enterprise Systems capabilities, an investigation of a  longitudinal case study employing grounded theory through the lens of critical  realism. Her PhD outcomes  highlight the role of shared cognition and the use of complexity theory in  Information Systems research. These topics were well received by the community  and lead to few conference papers and two Doctoral Consortia invitations in  recent years: ICIS 2007, Montreal,  Canada and ACIS 2006, Adelaide, Australia.

During her Master's thesis, Corina has investigated factors that influence the successful outcome of Information Systems Development and Implementation projects. Corina's others interest include research in the field of business process modelling in large scale projects, national cultures and their relationship to decision making processes in organisations, the diffusion and usage of mobile information systems technologies in organisations and improvement of teaching methods in this area.

Corina has co-authored and presented a numbers papers during her work in various projects, among them the ARC Linkage Projects 'Modelling in The Large' and 'Using Measures of Ontological Distance to Evaluate the Alignment between Organisational Needs and Enterprise Systems Capabilities'.

Corina's contribution to community is highlighted by her involvement with the reviewing process for Information Systems journals and conferences, as well as her prior commitments as the President of The University of Queensland Business School RHD Student Association and the Secretary of The University of Queensland Business School Alumni Association.
