Prof. Juliana Sutanto


Juliana Sutanto is a Full Professor in Information Systems, Co-Director of Connected Communities Research Lab, and Director of MSc. in E-Business and Innovation at the Department of Management Science of Lancaster University Management School. Her research focuses on artefact design and behavioural analysis in digital communications and interactions; as such she subscribes herself to the design and behavioural sciences paradigms. She examines how user interactions with IS could lead to organizational and societal benefits.

Juliana is currently researching on connected and resilient communities, focusing on infrastructure and social resilience, disaster management system, and smart national and urban parks. Her research work has been published in leading information systems journals such as MIS Quarterly and Information Systems Research, as well as in leading general management journal such as Management Science. Her smart park report, which was launched early this year, had received extensive media coverage in the UK such as from BBC Radio, SkyNews, and ITV, and abroad. She is currently an Associate Editor in MIS Quarterly.
