  • Digital entrepreneurship

Research approaches / theoretical interests

  • Socio-technical approaches to organising (work of Latour, Schatzki, Callon, Hayes and Orlikowski)
  • Critical realism in digital transformation (Volgoff, Bygstad and Henfridsson)
  • Generativity in digital innovation and entrepreneurship (Boland, Nambisan, Yoo and Zuboff).

Anna’s research focus is the phenomenon of digital technology in organising. Specifically, her focal concern is the way in which digital technology transforms business practices viewed from either collective or individual perspective. In addressing digital transformation, her research favours a critical socio-technical stance that rejects both the technological determinism and constructivism.

Within the area of digital technology studies, Anna has three enduring concerns:

  1. Theorising the relationship 'between' the social and the technical in organisational practices, specifically marketing practices.
  2. Technology and its relationship with processes of organising (such as digital innovation, digital marketing, digital entrepreneurship, etc).
  3. The implications of digital technology for customer behaviour, attitudes and perceptions (such as consumer engagement, brand relationships or online communities).

Within these areas, Anna is ambidextrous about research designs. Her publications include survey-based quantitative studies as well qualitative methods informed by theories of practice and process philosophy.
