Workshop Series: Kai Riemer
Associate Professor Kai Riemer joined the University of Sydney in August 2009 from Munster University in Germany, where he held a position as Assistant Professor. He received his Diploma in Information Systems (Dipl. Wirt-Inform.) and his Ph.D. from Muenster University, Germany, where he also recently finished his Postdoctoral thesis (Habilitation). Kai has held visiting positions with the Department of Information Systems at the University of Melbourne (in 2003) and Quinn School of Business at University College Dublin (in 2004).
His research interests cover the areas of e-Collaboration, inter-firm networking, virtual work, social impact of ICTs, and E-Commerce. In one current research stream he focuses on the application and use of communication media and collaborative systems and their impact and effect on groups and people in virtual work contexts (e.g. virtual teams, distributed projects). In doing so, he developed a method for team communication analysis supporting media selection. Another area of interest is concerned with the concept of the virtual organisation (VO). A prospective area for future research is the exploration of collaborative business process modelling practices.
