Brief Introduction Top
Hello and welcome to my NUS homepage. I'm an assistant professor of Communications and New Media at the National University of Singapore. I have previously worked as a visiting assistant professor at the School of Information Systems of Singapore Management University, a researcher at IBM Research in Switzerland, and a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, also in Switzerland. I was also a visiting researcher at Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. I hold an MSc in EECS from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and a PhD in Telecommunications and Information Systems, also from NTUA and in collaboration with the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, where I did the bulk of my dissertation work.
I am fascinated by networks of all kinds and have invested most of my time thus far in the study of data, trading, organizational, cultural, and social networks. I also find that the law and regulation of the Internet, this great network of networks that we have all come to depend on, will become increasingly important, so I also keep abreast of developments in this area. Two concurrent socio-technical developments have been at the center of my attention for the last couple of years: the rise of a popular remix culture and concomitant copyright issues, as well as our increasing reliance on social media for communication and for collective action.
I'm an associate fellow of the Center for Asia Pacific Technology Law and Policy (CAPTEL) at Nanyang Technological University, the public lead of Creative Commons Singapore, a member of the Community of IT Experts (CITE) hosted by the Singapore Internet Research Centre, an editor at IJCLP, a member of the Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet), a sustaining member of the Internet Society (ISOC), and a regular member of the AOIR, ICA, ACM and INFORMS.
