G. Harindranath (PhD, LSE), Reader in Information Systems

 

My Royal Holloway PURE Profile   My Google Scholar Citation Profile   My ResearchGate Profile           

 

Dr G. 'Hari' Harindranath is a Reader in Information Systems in the School of Management. Hari has a background in political economy and holds a doctorate in Information Systems from the London School of Economics. His research centres around the social and organisational implications of information and communications technology (ICT), including the use of ICT for development and in developing/transition countries, and the use of social media in social movements.

 

I am very keen to hear from PhD candidates with an interdisciplinary background interested in topics at the interface between ICTs and migration to work alongside our five-year research project on South-South migration - see below and HERE.

 

Hari is Co-Investigator on the 5-year (2019-2024, £20 million), ESRC funded, UKRI GCRF South-South Migration, Inequality and Development Hub led by Coventry University. He is the Royal Holloway lead for the work package (£670,000), ‘Technology, Inequality and Migration’. Working with Co-I, Prof Tim Unwin (Geography and the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D Chairholder), this work package seeks to understand the extent and ways through which the application of ICTs has alleviated or exacerbated existing inequalities in the context of South-South migration, as well as successes and challenges facing the use of ICT for migrant-related development outcomes. It also considers how the potential benefits of ICT can be leveraged to ensure that the developmental benefits of migration are harnessed and increased, particularly through reducing inequalities in ICT access and use. See full details HERE. See the UKRI GCRF statement HERE.

 

Hari is an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Information Technology, and the EPSRC-funded ORBIT Journal for Responsible Research & Innovation; Associate Editor of the Journal of Global Information Management, Senior Editor of The Electronic Journal of Information Systems in Developing Countries, and a co-founder of the Association for Information Systems-affiliate conference, International Conference on Information Resources Management (Conf-IRM). He has previously served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Global Information Technology Management, and EB Member of the International Journal of Knowledge Management.

 

Hari has published in leading journals such as the British Journal of Management, European Journal of Information Systems, Human Relations, Decision Support Systems, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, International Journal of Information Management, The Information Society among others; edited special issues for journals such as Journal of Information Technology (see Recent Activities below), Journal of Global Information Management, and Journal of Global Information Technology Management; and presented at numerous international conferences.

 

Hari teaches on the MBA and MSc programmes in the School of Management, where he also serves as the Director of Internationalisation. In 2008-9 he was chosen as the 'Outstanding MBA Teacher' by his students. Again in 2011-12, Hari was awarded the School of Management's Duncan Harris Memorial Prize for Excellence in Teaching. He also has extensive experience of teaching on executive and distance learning programmes as well as teaching internationally.
