Dr Roberta Bernardi

Personal profile

I am a Lecturer in Information Systems at the School of Management of Royal Holloway, University of London (UK). I hold a PhD from the University of Warwick. I have almost 10 years’ research experience in ICT for healthcare including research on health information systems in Kenya and more recently telehealth and online health communities in the UK. The expected impact of my research is to guide academics, policy makers and practitioners in the formulation of IT policies and strategies to support healthcare integration and patient-centered care.

My research features in leading conferences such as the International Conference of Information Systems (ICIS) and the Journal of the Association of Information Systems, a world leading journal. I currently serve as Senior Editor of Information Technology and People. I have been a referee for a number of internationally excellent journals such as Management Information Systems Quarterly, Journal of the Association of Information Systems, Journal of Management Information Systems, and Decision Science. I have organized and co-chaired tracks for internationally re-known conferences such as the Mediterranean Conference of Information Systems (MCIS) and the International Conference on Information Resources Management (Conf-IRM). I have served as Associate Editor for the European Conference of Information Systems (ECIS) and I have been a regular referee of the International Conference of Information Systems (ICIS).

I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK), a member of the British Academy of Management, the Association of Information Systems (AIS), and SIG Management Information Systems (SIGMIS).

I have several years’ teaching experience in various information technology and management subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I am the creator and leader of a new undergraduate course in Digital Innovation Management and in 2016-2017 I received a Teaching Excellence Commendation from Royal Holloway’s College.

I currently accept PhD students that want to conduct qualitative research in digital innovation in healthcare (and other sectors depending on the nature of the topic) and ICT for development.
