Short Biography

Jana has been with the team at the Insti­tute for Manage­ment Infor­ma­tion Systems since 2011, first as a rese­arch assis­tant and later as a rese­arch and teaching asso­ciate.

She studied psycho­logy at the Faculty for Psycho­logy at the Univer­sity of Vienna and is a master in work, orga­niza­t­ional and economic psycho­logy as well as rese­arch methods and evalua­tion.
Prior to working at the Insti­tute for Manage­ment Infor­ma­tion Systems she headed the rese­arch depart­ment at a policy oriented rese­arch think tank in her home country of Mace­donia where she gained inva­luable expe­ri­ence in rese­arch and advo­cacy for social issues such as civic enga­ge­ment, gender equa­lity, human rights, youth issues and urban deve­lop­ment.

Her rese­arch inte­rest are very diverse and range from the above mentioned social issues, through psycho­lo­gical and labor market predic­tors of worker’s well-being to the ethical issues arising from the digi­ta­liza­tion of ever­yday life and the promi­nence of new media.

At the Insti­tute or Manage­ment Infor­ma­tion Systems she has mainly worked on privacy and ownership issues of personal data on the internet; espe­cially in the social networks context. For this work, toge­ther with Prof. Dr. Sarah Spie­ker­mann and Dr. Chris­tine Bauer she won the CPDP 2013 Multi­di­sci­pli­nary Privacy Rese­arch Award (Compu­ters, Privacy & Data Protec­tion CPDP 2013).

At the moment she conti­nues her work on privacy and ownership issues of personal data as well as the impact of new media and tech­no­logy on the affec­tive, cogni­tive, and cona­tive aspects of the users as well as the well-being of society (as end-user of new media and tech­no­logy) in general.
