Research & Selected Publications

Research

We work on research problems concerned with the design, development, and evaluation of information systems in the domains of cloud computing, health information technology, and information privacy. Accounting for the interdisciplinary nature of information systems research, our research pays attention to the individual, technical, organizational, and societal facets of information systems.

To strengthen practical relevance, we conduct research projects with strong domain focus, in particular the healthcare and internet industries. This enables us to generate strong theoretical insights as well as to produce research outputs relevant to practical audiences. Thus, we contribute to an improved understanding of the social, political, commercial, and technological aspects of information systems management within the domains and beyond.
