Digital Socio-technical Design

Meet our staffResearch in this area aims to improve digital systems design, adoption, acceptance, security and sustainability, and uses complexity theory to facilitate positive transformation for both individuals and organisations. One example is research into socio-technical and 'soft-modelling' approaches to information systems design and adoption, in collaboration with the health sector, while a study into the UK Higher Education sector adoption of SharePoint was the first of its kind. Another example is novel work on the sustainability of digital systems and the carbon footprint of the digital economy, which links with the Research Council UK's digital economy sustainability society initiative.
