Dr Sander Zwanenburg is Lecturer in the Department of Information Science at the University of Otago, New Zealand. He earned a Bachelor and a Master of Science degree in Economics and Business from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and a PhD degree in Management Information Systems from The University of Hong Kong.

Sander’s research interest lies in three areas.

  1. The psychology of personal IT use: He wrote his PhD dissertation on smartphone addiction. In Hong Kong and New Zealand, he has conducted experiments on the role of personal IT use on interruptions, attention, experience, and conflicted behaviour.
  2. The development of measures and metrics: Aware of the gap between how we measure and how we need to measure in social science, Sander has also developed a passion to advance the field with better measurement methods and the development of valid metrics.
  3. Networks of knowledge: In the area of knowledge networks, Sander aims to bring research and practice closer together. He leads postgraduate research into mapping interdisciplinary work with bibliometric data. Further, Sander co-leads NEAR, the Network of Engagement and Research, an initiative in the University of Otago to map connections and capabilities of academics. The tool allows them to find and mobilize skills and contacts more easily.

Sander’s work has been published in premier outlets of the field of information systems including the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) and the Communications of the Association for Information Systems (CAIS). Sander participated in the Doctoral Consortia of the Pacific Asia Conference on Information Systems (PACIS) and of the Organizational Communications and Information Systems (OCIS) division of the Academy of Management. He is ad-hoc reviewer for Information Systems Frontiers (ISF), ICIS, CAIS, and is member of the Association for Information Systems and the Academy of Management. He has won a Best Paper Award on a solo-authored paper in the Australasian Conference on Information Systems (ACIS). All of Sander’s proceedings and journal publications have appeared in venues that have been ranked A or A*.

Sander teaches Information Systems Strategy and Governance and Information and Communication Technology and is a teaching case educator. He welcomes inquiries from students who would like to engage in fun projects in one or multiple of the research areas described above. Feel free to send an email.
