Alexandra Durcikova is an Associate Professor in the Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma. She has two research streams. The first stream focuses on the adoption of Electronic Knowledge Repositories (EKR) by individuals in organizational settings. The second stream focuses on end-user security behavior; specifically, the goal is to develop a deeper understanding of how different types of technical controls and educational controls influence employees’ compliance with security policies. Alexandra relies primarily on survey methods and experiments. Her work appeared in ISR, JMIS, CAIS, I&M, CACM, IJHCS, and IJKM.
