Bio

Sebastian Boell joined the department of Business Information Systems at the University of Sydney Business School in 2014. He holds a PhD in Information Systems from the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales and an MA in Information Science from Saarland University. Sebastian previously worked as a Postdoc at the University of Canberra on an ARC funded research investigating the effect of technology enabled work, such as telework, on productivity and work-life balance.

Sebastian is interested in theoretical and conceptual questions regarding information and information systems. He also continues to work in the area of telework, technology enabled work and work-life balance. Furthermore, Sebastian has published in the areas of bibliometrics and on conducting literature reviews and literature searches. Sebastian's research was awarded the ASIST ProQuest Doctoral Dissertation Award 2013, The VFI Award 2008 for his MA thesis, and best theoretical paper at ACIS 2011. His research is published in top-tier journals, such as the Communications of the Association of Information Systems (CAIS); the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST), or Scientometrics.
