Michael Dzandu

I hold a BSc in Computer Science and Psychology; and an MPhil in Information Studies (librarianship) degrees from the University of Ghana. I am currently a Doctoral Researcher at the Informatics Research Centre/Business Informatics Systems and Accounting, Henley Business School, University of Reading, UK. My research aim is to develop a framework of human information interface for knowledge activities to support context-specific decision making on stored information in information systems.

Prior to this, I worked as an Assistant Lecturer in the University of Ghana teaching IT related courses. I founded and served as a Senior Partner of Micky Informatics Consult in Ghana, and provided IT sales and services, information consultancy, software development and research consultancy to small, medium and large scale organisations. I also worked on several resource teams, delivering IT and records management training for employees in Ghanaian industries.

I have interest in human-technology interactions, knowledge management and analytics. In my spare time I enjoy football, and an active member of Reading Athletics Club and Parkrun.

I joined BCS in 2015, and currently volunteer as the Newsletter Editor for the BCS Berkshire branch. I like the enthusiasm and passion of the Committee members, and my role as part of the communications team helping to provide timely information to BCS Berkshire members.
