Overview:

Harminder Singh is an Associate Professor in Business Information Systems in the AUT Business School at the Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand. He teaches courses in information systems strategy, governance and business analytics. Harminder's research examines the governance of IT-enabled work environments, with studies on the impact of the growing virtualisation of work on occupations, managing the tension embedded in IT portfolios, and weaknesses in IT controls, among other things. Methodologically, he explores alternatives to cross-sectional studies to avoid endogeneity and ecological bias, such as hierarchical linear modelling and mixed-effects regression models. A new area of research is information systems and ethics, focusing on the governance of algorithms and the ethical use of data analytics. He has supervised or is currently supervising PhD students on a variety of topics, such as IT infrastructure adoption, outsourcing management, relationships between IT professionals and business users, and gamification. He studied accounting at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and holds a PhD in information systems from Michigan State University.
