Position: Secretary
I have been an Information Systems Scholar for the past 22 years. I first became involved with the IFIP 8.2 community as a PhD student in the early 2000s and have remained a part of the community mainly through attendance at OASIS workshops, e.g., most recently in Munich, December 2019, and through participation in the conferences (e.g. Dublin, 2017, and the joint virtual working conference, 2020 at which I co-authored 3 papers). Throughout my academic career, I have held many senior administrative academic posts, e.g. I am currently leading the Information Systems Research Group at the Information School, University of Sheffield, and heading up Postgraduate Research there. I am a Senior Editor in the Journal of Information Technology, an AIS Basket of 8 Journal. I have also either led or co-led numerous research projects, to date totalling around £343 K, many of which have addressed the social implications of IS use in situations of inequality or disadvantage. In the course of my career, I have also been awarded with the AIS Senior Scholars best paper award in 2014. As secretary to the working group, I would be committed to the task of continuing the production of knowledge within the academic community around the social significance of information (and data) and its increasingly ubiquitous media, technologies and infrastructures, in shaping our lives.
