Raffaele Fabio Ciriello




Hi! I joined the Information Management Research Group as a full-time PhD student in May 2014. Prior to that, I completed the master fast track program in Information Systems at the University of Zurich, did my bachelor studies at the Universities of Hohenheim and Stuttgart, and gained practical working experience as a software engineer at the leading Swiss banking software provider Avaloq. In my current research, I study emergent human practices in the context of digital innovation. I am particularly interested in studying phenomena related to the design, development, and use of innovative information systems in organizations.
