Prof. Dr. Gianluca Miscione

Guest Professor

I joined the group of Management Information Systems at the School of Busines of University College Dublin in June 2012. Previously I worked as Assistant Professor in Geo-Information and Organization at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-Information Management, Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation, University of Twente, Netherlands.
I received my Ph.D. in Information Systems and Organization from the University of Trento, with a research on telemedicine in the Amazon developed also at the Sociology Department of Binghamton University New York and School of International Service of American University in Washington DC. Then, I joined the Department of Informatics of the University of Oslo, where I developed my research on information infrastructures on the global scale.
Since 2017, I am visiting researcher at the Information Management Research Group of the University of Zurich. Common interests revolve around applications and actual uses of blockchains.
