Researcher biography

Dr Sabine Matook is an Associate Professor in Information Systems at the UQ Business School, University of Queensland. She received her doctoral degree from the Technische Universität (TU) Dresden, Germany.

Sabine's research interests focus on the creation, adoption and use, and consequences of use of IT artifacts in the two areas of agile information systems development (ISD) and social media. Within the context of agile ISD, she seeks to understand why and how the behaviors of teams and individuals dynamically shape the design and development of the IT artifact. Her interests also motivate the work on affordances and influences of social IT artifacts (e.g., social media) on and by users in the real and the virtual world.
