About Mathias Hatakka

I have been employed at the Örebro University School of Business since 2006. From year 2007 I held a position as a PhD-student and I defended my thesis in June 2013. Currently I have an employment at the Örebro University School of Business as an assistant professor where I mainly work as a lecturer in our different system development courses. I am also the programme manager for our Master’s education in IS.

My major areas of research are Information- and Communication Technologies for Development (ICT4D) and ICT supported education. Since 2006 I have been working in several e-learning projects in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Sweden. The focus of my thesis is on the link between ICT and human development, and more specifically on the use of Amartya Sen’s Capability Approach as a tool to evaluate this link. In the thesis I use the Capability Approach to evaluate the outcomes in the form of capabilities that different ICT supported education projects have enabled for students and teachers. At present I am also involved in several research networks in ICT4D, e.g. The Special Interest Group on Global Development (AIS SIG GlobDev) and IFIP wg9.4 (Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries). I have acted as a coordinator for IPID (The International Network for Post Graduate Students in the Area of ICT4D) during 2009-2011 and I am also an assigned reviewer for several journals and conferences (e.g. Information Technologies for Development, Learning, Media and Technology and ECIS).
