My research interests mainly revolve around electronic business and its various sub-domains and high tech entrepreneurship. More specifically, my research aims to inform our understanding of how e-business technologies affect the social and business environment, organisational strategies and business models, and how these are implemented in terms of functional innovations. My work puts strong emphasis on innovation, new value creation and exploitation of entrepreneurial opportunities, within the context of different industries. Apart from the impact that the Internet and related technologies can have on businesses, I am also very much interested in the impact such technologies can have on individual users.
I am currently working on a number of e-related papers (e.g. on virtual worlds, political marketing and mobile video). A few of my publications may be also available in the e-print section of University's main web site.
- E-learning & Higher Education
- ICT Innovation, Adoption and Acceptance
- Social / New Media
- Virtual worlds / metaverses
- Internet and other emerging technologies
Apart from postgraduate dissertation supervision, I am supervising a number of doctoral students.
