Welcome to my website. My name is Jochem Hummel and I am an Assistant Professor in the Information Systems and Management group at Warwick Business School in the United Kingdom. Here you will find information on my life, my research, my publications, and my teaching past and present.
My research focuses on understanding the organizing mechanisms and processes used by organizations in complex interorganziational collaborations to pursue broad goals related to digital innovation. My first priority lies with doing highly rigorous, qualitative, empirical research. For example, my dissertation research concerns a longitudinal study of a collaboration between “big science” and “big business: called Helix Nebula, where I analyze how large scientific institutes (CERN, EMBL, ESA) collaborate with commercial cloud computing organizations (Atos, T-Systems), and public infrastructure providers (EGI, GEANT), to develop a European scientific cloud computing infrastructure.
I am a passionate qualitative researcher (case study and ethnographic methods). I typically do process research, and through my interest in micro-level dynamics I also have knowledge of practice theory. Driven by my determination for methodological rigor I have adopted digital methods for qualitative data as a complementary analysis technique.
