Personal profile

Personal information

Ella Hafermalz joined the KIN research group in 2018. Ella has a PhD in Information Systems and Work and Organisational Studies from the University of Sydney Business School in Australia and also holds degrees in Teaching, Media and Communications, and Cultural Studies from the University of Melbourne, Australia.


Her research looks at how technologies are used to facilitate new ways of working. Ella is particularly interested in how distance and remoteness are experienced by workers, and her research has looked at how colleagues skillfully use technologies to achieve a sense of being together even when they are physically apart. Understanding this aspect of work is relevant for organisations that are becoming more distributed and also in healthcare, where technologies are increasingly used by practitioners to care for patients at a distance.
