Dr Petros Chamakiotis (BSc, MSc, PhD, FHEA) is an Associate Professor of Management (2019–present) at ESCP Business School in Madrid, Spain, where he is also the Scientific Director of the MSc in Digital Project Management & Consulting (2020–present), and member of the ESCP Chair on 'Reinventing Work', funded by BivwAk at BNP Paribas in France. Concurrently, he is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sussex Business School where he is affiliated with the Digital Futures at Work Research Centre (an £8m, Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC-)funded research centre in the UK); an External Examiner (EE) for the MSc in Digital Business at Royal Holloway, University of London; an Associate Editor (AE) for the Information Systems Journal (2021–present) and the International Journal of Information Management (2023–present); and a Section Editor (SE) for the Australasian Conference of Information Systems (2018–present).

Petros read Economics at the University of Piraeus and then moved to the University of Bath in the UK where he earned his MSc in Management and Strategic Information Systems and later his PhD in the same area with the support of a scholarship from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). He subsequently held a postdoctoral position at Royal Holloway, University of London (2013–2015), and was 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. 

His research and teaching interests focus on the impact of Information Systems (IS) on work and society. Within this context, his research has largely focused on IS–mediated envirornments, such as hybrid work, digital platforms, online communities, and virtual teams. His research is also driven by societal challenges and he has thus been (co-)leading projects exploring IS use/adoption in the Global South (2016–present) and the context of forced migration (2018–present). He has generated research income from prestigous funders—such as The British Academy—and, to date, he has published more than 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals, edited collections, and international conference proceedings. Additionally, Petros maintains strong links with the professional community, e.g., through workshops, speeches/panels at practitioner events and other forms of (often online) research dissemination activities. For example, he has written for the professional press in British and Spanish outlets (e.g., LSE Business Review; elPeriódico) and for popular international organisations (e.g., World Economic Forum); and he/his research has been mentioned by the popular press (e.g., The Times; Daily Mail).

Finally, Petros has been involved in international accreditations both as an evaluator and as programme director. Since he took on the Directorship of the MSc in Digital Project Management & Consulting, the MSc has received two accreditations: (a) by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research & Innovation as part of ESCP's «Diplôme d’Etudes Avancé en Management International des Entreprises» (DEAMIE); and (b) by the Community of Madrid as an official and recognised foreign postgraduate degree (at the MSc level) delivered by ESCP Madrid Campus. Prior to his current role at ESCP, he was on the teams that led the University of Sussex Business School to EQUIS and AMBA accreditations. 

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