Reihaneh is an Associate Lecturer in Information Systems School, Queensland University of Technology. She completed her PhD in 2018.

Reihaneh is an information systems researcher with expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research. Her research has opened up new avenues for the IS school (both the areas of crowdsourcing and work coordination). Reihaneh’s work combines empirical analysis, design and data analytics for information systems applications. Her research contributes to system improvement and collaborative design through an understanding of how crowdsourced data and collaborations impact system performance and quality. She uses qualitative and quantitative methods to investigate dynamic networks and implication of digital transformation in work coordination and collaboration. She has contributed to a number of peer-reviewed conferences and she has been awarded an outstanding paper award in 2017 (IEEEICACT).

Reihaneh is responsible for unit development and delivery as well as unit coordination with large and diverse cohorts, both at undergraduate and masters levels. This includes in-class and remote delivery of lectures and workshops. These units relate to specialised technologies and cutting edge systems, which are in high demand in industry including Enterprise Architecture (IAB401), Design of Enterprise IoT systems (IAB230), Mobile and Pervasive Systems (IFN661), and MobileApp Development (IAB230, earlier offering).

As a Research Ethics Advisor (REA), Reihaneh performs a leadership role that assists QUT to meet the research ethics standards for human research as described in the National Statement. Reihaneh was appointed as IS School Research Ethics Advisor (SREA)in SEF where she was responsible for providing reviews and feedback for research ethics applications. In August 2019, she was promoted to deputy Faculty Research Ethics Advisor (FREA) and she became a member of QUT’s Human ResearchEthics Committee (QUT Research Integrity Advisor (RIA)).

Reihaneh was a professional artistic gymnast from the age of 6. After the age of 18, she continued her career as a professional aerobic gymnast. She achieved several national titles for gymnastics and aerobic gymnastics. She works as an advanced Woman Artistic Gymnastics judge in Australia.

Reihaneh was involved in coordination and delivery of four different postgraduate and undergraduate units to a diverse body of students. In all four units, Reihaneh was responsible for coordinating the unit, content design, delivery of the lecture content, developing tutorial activities and designing authentic assessment:

  1. Design of Enterprise IoT (former Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing) (IAB230)- S12018-2019-2020
  2. Mobile and Pervasive Systems (IFN661)- S12018
  3. Mobile App Development (IAB330)- S22018
  4. Enterprise Architecture (IAB401)- S22019- 2020


Student Testimonial:

“ I think it’s great that Reihaneh has explanation in the slides that students can reflect on and also how she has practice examples in the lecture to cover the modelling or content covered. Recommending readings and her willingness and eagerness to lend the students a hand, really helps with the overall learning experience. Keep up the good work Reihaneh.”
