Kenan Degirmenci is a Lecturer in the School of Information Systems and part of the Service Science Research Group. His research focuses on analysing how information systems support individuals and organisations to improve decision-making. More specifically, he focuses on four aspects: (1) decision modelling to understand decision-making, (2) quantitative research methods in information systems to evaluate decision-making, (3) digital services to motivate decision-making for sustainable behaviour change, and (4) psychometric analysis to improve information security and privacy decisions.

He is currently working on the design and development of a decision model in blockchain adoption and intergenerational discounting. His prior projects include research on an IFE Catapult project entitled “Mitigating Urban Heat”, in which an Internet of things enabled wireless sensor network was implemented for environmental monitoring in Hamilton, QLD, an ARC Discovery Grant funded project entitled “Developing a Theory of Green Information Systems”, and a project funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy entitled “Showcase Electric Mobility” at the University of Hannover in Germany in cooperation with industry partner Volkswagen.
