Bo Andersson

I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Informatics at Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM).

The overarching perspective of my research interests is how information systems can help organisations achieve their goals. Often labelled digital transformation or, the fusion of organisational objectives and information systems into business technologies (BT). 

This interest of mine once began with a dissertation on what kind of species mobile computing is, accompanied with design propositions on how to develop mobile information systems for the digital ranger. After that, my focus has broadened to also include design and use of other types of business technologies, such as m-Health, e-Health, ERP systems, as well as ICT-based innovations and business models. 

I review publications in journals and conferences such as the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems, Asia Pacific Journal of Marketing and Logistics, International Conference on Information Systems, European Conference on Information Systems, Information System Development Conference and Mobile Response. Also assigned as associate editor at the Journal of Decision Systems, and affiliated senior with the Swedish Research School of Management and IT (MIT)

I belong to the Supporting-LIFE research project, investigating the use of mobile technologies to improve healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa. Also assigned as a research advisor at A Medic, a non-profit organisation developing sustainable mHealth solutions in LMCI in Sub-Saharan Africa

Besides research, I also teach and supervise at bachelor, master and doctoral level at the department.

I have been a guest lecturer at University of Calabria (Italy) in project management, at Copenhagen Business School (Denmark) in system development, University of Verona (Italy) in enterprise resource planning systems, and at Deusto University (Spain) in business process modelling.
