About me

Dragana Paparova is a Visiting Research Student in Information Systems and Innovation at the Department of Management (LSE). Dragana's research interests unite two strands of significant information systems inquiry: data governance in digital ecosystems, and the production, sharing and usage of patient-generated healthcare data. Her PhD research project investigates the topic of data governance in digital ecosystems in healthcare, taking place in heavily regulated socio-institutional environments.  Empirically, she is investigating this topic by following digital transformation initiatives for patient-centric care, which are heavily rooted in the importance of sharing citizen/patient data beyond the boundaries of single organisations. Theoretically, her interests lie in complexity theories, or assemblage theory in particular. She aims to use this high-level abstract theory to generate concepts which will bring greater understanding to the data governance phenomenon. 

Dragana is currently enrolled in a PhD programme in Information Systems at the University of Agder in Norway. She also has four years of industry experience working in an IT company, as well as in the outsourcing business. During her Masters degree in e-business management, she also followed the governance of eHealth platforms in the context of the developing world. Her aspirations beyond the PhD lie in engaging deeper with topics closely related to data governance, such as: data-driven value creation, data-intensive ecosystems, or data platforms in the digital transformation and digital innovation literature streams.
