Dissertation is a series of 3 essays on website signaling. Proposal defended in Nov 2010. Mixed method study. Versions of the research have been presented at HICSS, AMCIS and ICIS. No information on defense date provided, but it is likely late summer, fall based on my read of the application.

Analysis of how online vendors signal to buyers and how buyers evaluate signals. Experiment, content analysis of websites (hmm, think that'd be first), another experiment. Seems like a red queen's race. But each is described only vaguely. Only 3rd essay is in progress at the moment. Seems a bit far along.
