Dr Lorraine Morgan Dip, MSc., PhD.
Prior to joining NUI Galway, Lorraine worked as a
researcher and lecturer at the University of Limerick where she was also
involved in a number of collaborative research projects involving international
and national based industry partners.
Lorraine has been a lecturer with the Business Information Systems Discipline and Senior Research Fellow with Lero at NUI Galway since September 2010. Her principal
teaching and research interests are open innovation, open business models, value networks,
agile methods, cloud computing and open source software. Over the past number of years, Lorraine has
also been involved in various project consortia attracting over 20m in funding.
In addition, she is co-leading a project, funded by Science Foundation Ireland,
that is part of an industry-focused network of excellence around agile and lean
systems development and open innovation. She has also been Organizing Chair and
Local Committee Chair for a number of international conferences including LESS 2013, the
11th International Conference on Product Focused Software Development
and Process Improvement (PROFES 2010), the International Federation for
Information Processing Working Conference (IFIP) 8.6 and 8.2, XP 2008 Conference
and the Third International Conference on Open Source Systems. In addition,
some of her research, one of which received a best paper award, has been
published in journals and conferences such as the European Journal of Information Systems, Database for Advances in
Information Systems, Information and Software Technology, IEEE Computer, International
Conference of Information Systems (ICIS), European Conference of Information
Systems (ECIS), International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP)
Working Conference 8.6 and 8.2 and the International Open Source Systems
Conference. Lorraine has reviewed for journals and conferences such as the Journal of the Association for Information Systems, the
Database for Advances in Information Systems, Information and Software
Technology, the Americas Conference in Information Systems and the European
Conference in Information Systems.
