Diane Bailey (BS, MS, and PhD industrial engineering and operations research University of California, Berkeley). Bailey recently led a ten-year study of the role of advanced IT, including sophisticated computational software, in engineering analysis and design, resulting in publications in top organizational studies, engineering, and communication journals. With an expertise in organizational ethnography, she favors large-scale empirical studies, often involving multiple occupations, countries, and researchers. Her current research investigates remote occupational socialization, or how, via IT, individuals learn and perform occupations far from communities of similar practitioners.
