August 18, 2017 – Cypress, CA – Trident University International’s (Trident) Dr. Wendy Wang presented a paper at this year’s Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS). The conference ran from August 10th to the 12th in Boston, MA.
The paper, titled “Role of IT Identity in Moderating the Relationship Between Technostress, Job Engagement, and Productivity,” was co-authored with Dr. Jignya Patel of Florida Institute of Technology.
The study investigates the moderating effect of IT identity between techno-stress, IT job engagement, and productivity, and how IT identity can help to cope with stress created by techno-stressors, which diminishes the negative effect of stressors on job engagement and productivity.
Dr. Wang currently serves as Department Chair in Information Management Technology and Computer Science in Trident’s Glenn R. Jones College of Business. She oversees programs at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels. Her areas of expertise include management information systems, information technology, and social sciences.
