Dr Antonios Kaniadakis

Lecturer in Information Technology Management

Research Interests

My research is multi-disciplinary and combines insights from Information Systems, Economic Sociology, Innovation Studies and Management. I have an interest in socio-technical analyses of information and communication technologies, predominantly in the finance sector. More recently, I started looking into the role of social media as marketing information systems. 

I am a qualitative researcher and an experienced ethnographer. 

Topics of interest include: Social informatics, digital innovation, information infrastructures, social studies of finance, innovation ecosystems, enterprise systems (e.g. ERP), social media. 

I publish in information systems and social sciences journals.
