Dr Petros Chamakiotis (BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA) is an Associate Professor of Management and the Scientific Director of the MSc in Digital Project Management & Consulting at ESCP Business School in Madrid, Spain; the Chair of the IFIP WG 9.5 'Our Digital Lives'; and a Visiting Senior Lecturer at the University of Sussex Business School where he is affiliated with the Digital Futures at Work (Digit) Research Centre (an £8m, Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC-)funded research centre co-hosted by the Universities of Sussex and Leeds). 

Petros was earlier in the UK where he earned his PhD from the University of Bath with the support of a scholarship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), and subsequently held a postdoctoral position at Royal Holloway, University of London (2013-2015). He was then appointed Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) at the University of Sussex (2015-2019). He obtained Fellowship status of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) in 2016 and tenure in 2017. Petros has also held visiting teaching positions at Birkbeck, University of London (2015) and the University of Valencia (2016-2018). He has supervised one PhD student to completion (2016-2019) and is currently a co-supervisor of another PhD student at the University of Sussex.

His specific research and teaching interests focus on:

  • Online collaboration and virtual teams;
  • The role of technology in emergencies (refugee crises, pandemics);
  • The management of ubiquitous connectivity; and
  • Online (health) communities and digital platforms.

Supported by prestigious funders (e.g. The British Academy, EPSRC, ESRC), his research has been published in numerous outlets: (a) academic journals in the fields of information systems and management (e.g. Information Systems Journal; Organizational Research Methods; New Technology, Work and Employment; International Journal of Information Management); (b) practitioner outlets (e.g. LSE Business Review); (c) international conference proceedings (e.g. ICIS; ECIS; AMCIS); and (d) edited collections (e.g. Oxford University Press; Palgrave Macmillan). In his most recent practitioner article, entitled "how to 'go virtual' as efficiently and painlessly as possible", published in the LSE Business Review, he translates some of his own research findings into actionable items for practitioners who are 'forced' to transition into virtual working due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His research has also been attracting media attention—with a #YBOTBPodcast interview on "technological developments in the workplace" as part of the Talking About Organizations podcast series and some forthcoming interviews—being some of his latest media contributions.

In terms of academic service, Petros is a Section Editor for the Australasian Journal of Information Systems and a Topic Editor for Administrative Sciences. He organizes tracks at international conferences, he reviews for Information Systems Journal and Information Technology & People (among several other journals and conferences), and he maintains strong links with the practitioner community, e.g. through workshops, speeches/panels at practitioner events and other forms of (often online) research dissemination activities (such as this creative brochure summarizing his work (w/ colleagues) with MedicineAfrica; a digital platform offering medical education online in post-conflict states).

Petros holds Greek (EU) and British citizenship, speaks English, Greek and Spanish fluently (C2), and has an intermediate knowledge of German (B1).
