Sarah Spiekermann, Ph.D.   –   Business Informatics Professor and Thinker

  • I am a professor for Business Informatics and thinker in the field of Digital Ethics. My employer is Vienna University of Economics and Business where I chair the Institute for IS & Society since 2009 and founded the Privacy & Sustainable Computing Lab in 2016.

    Before Vienna I did my Ph.D and 2nd book in Business Informatics at Humboldt University Berlin where I managed the Berlin Research Centre on Internet Economics. From 2008 to 2010 I was also Adjunct Research Professor at Carnegie Mellon University, USA.

    I went into IT in the mid 1990s when I started working for Silicon Valley pioneer firms; later as a consultant for A.T. Kearney.

    I am an honorary citizen of Austria, where I live in a small village in the Burgenland. I was born and grew up near Düsseldorf, Germany, in 1973.
