Bio

Dr Daniel Schlagwein is an Associate Professor of Information Systems at The University of Sydney Business School. He holds a PhD and a Masters in Information Systems from the University of Cologne. Daniel is a Visiting Professor to New York University's Stern Business School (2015, 2020). Prior to academia, he was consulting in the ICT industry. At the University of Sydney, he co-leads the Digital Disruption Research Group and teaches digital work and technology leadership to undergraduate and Executive/MBA students.

Daniel's research focuses on digital work, digital nomadism, crowdsourcing and IT-enabled openness. He is the lead investigator on the Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project on digital nomadism (DP190102780, A$390,000, 2019-21). Daniel has published over 60 peer-reviewed papers, including in leading journals such as the Information Systems Journal, the Journal of Information Technology, the Journal of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) and The Journal of Strategic Information Systems. The AIS Research Ranking 2018 puts him in the top 100 of Information Systems researchers worldwide, while the Financial Times Ranking 2019 puts him in the top 100 of German business researchers. Daniel's research is featured in, for example, Sky News, The Sydney Morning Herald and McKinsey Quarterly and he frequently speaks at industry and academic conferences.

Daniel is the Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the prestigious international quarterly, Journal of Information Technology. The journal is considered to be in the leading journals of the field (part of the AIS' Senior Scholars' Basket of Journals). Daniel has repeatedly served as track chair (at the ECIS and ICIS conferences) and edited two special issues in his research field. He frequently reviews for leading Information Systems and Management journals as well as for funding bodies such as the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council or the Australian ARC.

Daniel was awarded the AIS Early Career Award in 2016; the Journal of the Association for Information Systems Best Reviewer Award in 2016; and the AIS Best Information Systems Publication Award in 2017.
