As an LSE Fellow and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Digital Economy at INDEX, I hold a PhD in Information Systems from the Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science. My research focuses on the essential elements of big data value chain, from the development of data infrastructures, through the practices of data production, analysis and use, to the monetisation of big data through various business models. Specifically, I focus on understanding how organisations derive value from data and how analytics support organisational decision-making and management, and I investigate the development of data infrastructures and ecosystems. In my research, I combine qualitative and quantitative approaches to research, blending the case study methodology with computational methods in social sciences. My research programme is geared towards information systems and management journals. I am committed to multidisciplinary teaching and keen to explore constructive alignment in information systems, as well as the use of online and technology-based approaches to effective learning. I serve as a reviewer for top journals and conferences in the field, and regularly organise and volunteer at workshops and events. Both my research and teaching benefit from past industry experience as an entrepreneur in e-learning, IT and communication.
