Professor Bassellier joined the Faculty of Management in 2001. While a Ph.D.student at the University of British Columbia, she was Managing Editor of Information Systems Research, and Coordinator for the Bureau for e-business Research at the Faculty of Commerce at UBC. Professor Bassellier was nominated for the 1999 International Conference on Information Systems Doctoral Consortium, Charlotte, North Carolina. She was a visiting scholar at the National University of Singapore in October 2000.

Professor  Bassellier's teaching interests include Information Systems Management, Knowledge Management, and Strategic Management of IT. She teaches these courses in the BCom, MBA, and PhD program.

Her research examines the management of Information Technologies. She explores the dynamics between IT professionals and their business clients, and the role of top management in IT strategic initiatives. She also looks at how organizations can best leverage their intellectual capital through knowledge adoption from online knowledge communities, knowledge integration in geographically dispersed teams, and knowledge requirements in the context of outsourcing. More recently she started working on the role of emotions in technology adoption and on post adoption behaviors. Her work has been published in Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, and the Journal of Management Information Systems.
