Shamel Addas, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Management (Information Systems Track)
Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Shamel Addas. I am an Assistant Professor of Management in the Information Systems Track at the IESEG School of Management, France.
I hold a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, American University in Cairo, an MBA from the John Molson School of Business, Concordia University, and a Ph.D. in Management (IS specialization) from McGill University.
My research interests lie around the intended/ unintended impacts of information technology at different levels of analysis. I am currently conducting research on the diverse impacts of information & communication technology interruptions on individuals and groups, and ways to cope with the effects of such interruptions. I am also doing research on the behavioral impacts of big data, IT-enabled knowledge integration, and the business value of IT innovations.
At IESEG, I teach courses at the Bachelor and Master levels. These include Introduction to IS, Management of IS, IS Project Management, Generating Business Value from IS, IS Strategy & Company Observation, and Quantitative Research Methodology. I also teach MIS courses in the Netherlands (MSc. in Business Administration) and in Egypt (EMBA program). I use a blended teaching approach including lectures, interactive sessions, business case studies, business games, and e-learning. At IESEG, I am also involved in supervising Master student theses.
I am also active in providing academic services to the university (e.g., serving on the Teaching Quality Committee; advisory board member for the school's IS strategy), and to the IS community (e.g., ad-hoc reviewer for various journals/ conferences, AE at conferences, Session Chair, and Track Discussant).
In the past, I held various posts in the industry including Production Engineer, Operations Analyst, and Microsoft Service Professional.
