Professor Dr. Russell Haines
Russell Haines is Professor at the Old Dominion University, Norfolk (USA), Department of IT and Decision Sciences. His central research interest is the impact of information technology on group interaction. This has grown from his study of sociology as a supporting field and his use of a computer-based group experiment for his dissertation. Prof. Haines has leveraged his experience with computer-supported experimentation and teamed with others to study group interaction, group behavior, and other phenomena involving multiple participating individuals. He is currently leading research projects that study 1) the creation of awareness in computer-mediated communication and its effect on group decision-making, 2) the ethical decision-making processes in individuals and groups when considering the use/misuse of information technology, and 3) supply chain decision-making and decision coordination.
Professor Russell Haines is visiting the Institute of Information Systems to give the lecture on “Network Economics” (Master) and to moderate some PhD reading sessions at the chair of Prof. Dr. Stefan Klein.
