Her research agenda focuses on young adults' digital experiences, senior executives' online leadership practices, and digital leadership pedagogy. She maintains an active research agenda, currently undertaking research projects with colleagues around the globe.
For the fourth year in a row, she has been named to the “Top 50 Must-Read Higher Education Technology Blogs” by Ed Tech Magazine. Her podcast, Josie & The Podcast was featured by The Chronicle of Higher Ed and Inside Higher Ed as a show to subscribe to.
