Shamel Addas, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Information Systems
Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Shamel Addas. I am an Assistant Professor of Information Systems (IS) at the Smith School of Business, Queen's University. Prior to that, I was Assistant Professor of IS at Ieseg School of Management in 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 centres on the intended and unintended consequences of information systems on organizational work. My current research interests include communication technology interruptions, the dark side of IS, and health information technologies. My research has been published or is forthcoming in leading journals such as MIS Quarterly, Journal of Management Information Systems, Information Systems Journal, Systèmes d’Information et Management, Knowledge Management Research and Practice, and AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction. I have also presented my work at various academic conferences, including the Academy of Management, ICIS, AMCIS, HICSS, and ASAC
At Queen's, I teach courses in the Commerce program (undergraduate) and in our graduate program. I have also been invited to teach 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. I am also involved in supervising graduate students.
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.
