Overview

Prof. Jyoti Choudrie is a Professor of Information Systems in Hertfordshire Business School, Management, Leadership and Organisation (MLO) department where she previously led the Systems Management Research Unit (SyMRU) and currently is a co-convenor for the Managing Complex Change group. In terms of research, Professor Choudrie was and is known as the Broadband expert in University of Hertfordshire, which was also the case in Brunel University. In both institutions Professor Choudrie maintained an active media profile where she made media comments on the digital divide, social inclusion, entrepreneurship, innovation and broadband development. She has also attained expertise in the non-adopters and adopters research area that has led her to understand the digital divide where her research influence lies. For this, she has used classic Information Systems area theories such as the Technology Acceptance Model and Unified Theory for the Use and Acceptance of Technology and Diffusion of Innovations theory as well as Theory of Planned Behaviour that has led to doctoral completions in Broadband, Online Social Networks and Electronic Government. This interest is maintained and updated by leading a mini-track on ICT adoption, use and diffusion in the Hawaii International Conference of Systems Sciences (HICSS) and European Conference of Information Systems (ECIS). To ensure her research is widely disseminated, Professor Choudrie co-edited a Routledge research monograph with Prof. C. Middleton: The Management of Broadband Technology Innovation and completed a research monograph published by Routledge Publishing and focused on social inclusion along with Dr. Sherah Kurnia and Dr. Panayiota Tsatsou titled: Social Inclusion and Usability of ICT-Enabled Services. In terms of projects, Professor Choudrie is presently researching older adults and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) where her interest is on the adoption, use and diffusion of Information and Communication Technologies in older adults, with an emphasis on entrepreneurship for older adults which led to her attending the  2015 Senior Entrepreneurs Best Practices Workshop held in Spain and continuing with this interest with academics drawn from Portsmouth University and DeMontfort University. She is also very focused on examining and understanding the digital divide by considering internet access for older adults, which has led to her working with AGE (UK) Hertfordshire and a local, Indian radio station. Finally, she is focused on the management of Dementia using ICTs in older adults where she is working with partners drawn from Brunel University, Westminster University and Royal Holloway University.
