Biography

Edgar is a Reader in Information Systems in the Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Science.  Edgar was the research coordinator of the influential LSE Identity Project on the UK’s proposals to introduce biometric identity cards; proposals that were scrapped following the 2010 General Election.  His book with Gus Hosein Global Challenges for Identity Policies was published by Palgrave in 2010.  Edgar has also advised governments in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Jamaica about the political, technological and social challenges of effective identity policies.

Edgar has a BSc (Econ) and PhD in Information Systems, both from the LSE.  He is the co–editor of Information Technology and People and has served as conference chair for the European Conference on Information Systems, track chair for the International Conference on Information Systems and was an associate editor for the European Journal of Information Systems and MIS Quarterly.

In addition to his research on privacy and identity, Edgar is also researching cloud computing and is the co–author of book Moving to the cloud corporation, published by Palgrave 2014.
