Dr Mira Slavova holds a PhD from the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. She works on topics linking the fields of Information Systems and Organisation Theory. The prevailing focus of her research is on the sociomateriality of information and communication technologies (ICTs): How are ICTs used in routine practice -- by individuals and within organizations? How are ICTs shaped by social norms and structures? How do ICTs impact societies at large? Mira's work spans the boundary between academic and applied research, pursuing not only intellectual rigor but also meaningful impact.
Mira is passionate about exploring digitisation and organisations in African settings (e.g. Liberia, Ghana, South Africa). She has held positions at the International Food Policy Research Institute (Washington, DC), SAP Africa Innovation Center (South Africa) and Gordon Institute of Business Science (University of Pretoria). Prior to joining WBS, Mira has taught at ESSEC Business School (Paris) and London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
