About

Marten Risius is Senior Lecturer in Business Information Systems at the University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia. Marten holds the AIS Early Career Award as the discipline's highest distinction for young scholars within only 4 years of receiving his PhD. He graduated in psychology summa cum laude from the University of Osnabrueck, Germany and was the first psychologist to graduate from the House of Finance at the Goethe University Frankfurt, where he received his PhD in Information Systems summa cum laude. Afterwards, he worked as postdoctorate at the University of Mannheim, Germany, where he managed the research alliance "ForDigital" between the University of Mannheim and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Subsequently, he worked as an assistant professor (tenure-track) at Clemson University, SC, USA prior to joining UQ. Marten is also a research fellow at the Weizenbaum Institute in Berlin, Germany.

His research interests are in the areas of social media and blockchain technologies. He applies business analytics to solve managerial and societal issues (e.g., privacy (paradox), centralization, echo-chambers, fake news). His articles have been published in several journals (e.g., SMJ, JSIS, JIT, I&M, MISQE, CAIS, BISE) and peer-reviewed conference proceedings (ICIS, ECIS, AMCIS, PACIS). His work has been covered by public media sites such as The Boston Globe or China Finance Online. This research is funded with approximately $1.4m AUD by the Australian Department of Home Affairs, the Hong Kong Research Council, and the German Academic Exchange Service.

His dissertation thesis was recognized as the best publication in the entire field of Business Administration from a young researcher in Germany, Austria and Switzerland by the VHB (German Academic Association for Business Research), received the TARGION award for the best practice-oriented research on strategic information management, was honored as the best dissertation from the Frankfurt Chamber of Commcerce, and was a finalist for the Schmalenbach-Award.

He is Associate Editor for Internet Research (IF 4.708 in 2019) and guest AE for JIT and BISE. Dr. Risius also serves as Track Chair at ECIS 2021 for "Social and Ethical Implications of ICT Use", at HICSS 2021 for "Social Media and e-Business Transformation" and as Lead Track Chair at PACIS 2021 for "Blockchain and Fintech", as Associate Editor at ICIS, ECIS, PACIS and WI and as reviewer for various international journals (e.g., ISR, MISQ, JMIS, JAIS, ISJ, JSIS, DSJ, BISE, ISeB, Electronic Markets, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice) and conferences (e.g., ICIS, ECIS, HICSS, AMCIS, PACIS, WI, MKWI). In his free time he serves as member of the talent jury for the German Association of Mail, Information Technology and Telecommunication (DVPT) Start-Up Future Award 2017 and 2019.

Together with his friend Dr Florian Glaser, Marten pursues the project Lecture Pool to overcome the boundaries of higher education.
