Dr Shane McLoughlin is Assistant Professor of Management Information Systems at National University of Ireland (NUI) Maynooth.
Previous to his current role, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher for LERO (Irish Software Research Institute) at Maynooth University, as part of the Technology Adoption Group led by Prof Brian Donnellan.
Shane holds a PhD from the College of Social Sciences and Law at University College Dublin (UCD), sponsored by an award from the HW Wilson Foundation. His PhD examined how technology mediates and augments social aspects to Human Information Behaviour. The thesis drew on the work of Pierre Bourdieu and Nan Lin to contribute a concept and measure of 'Information Social Capital', understood as the extent of diversity of information resources individuals can access and mobilise from others. The work also proposed a theoretical model of instrumental aspects of Human Information Behaviour. Professor Nan Lin (Duke University) acted as external examiner of his viva.
His current interest is on socio-technical considerations and approaches for developing, adopting and scaling disruptive social innovations. He has collaborated with several large multinational technology companies (such as Intel and Dell Technologies) to examine disruptive technologies from Internet of Things to Driverless Cars, and draws on both qualitative and quantitative methodologies to do so.
Shane and co-authors have contributed publications to the ‘Journal of Information Science’, ‘Government Information Quarterly’, ‘Smart Cities’ Journal and the ‘Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management’, as well as having presented his work at all major Information Systems conferences; HICSS, ECIS, DESRIST, AMCIS, PACIS and ICIS. In 2022, his paper won the Kauffman Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS). The work on servitization of Predictive Maintenance technology entailed a collaboration with a large multinational tech firm, as well as with co-authors on the paper. Shane has been a reviewer on several Information Systems journals and conferences over the years, such as the European Journal on Information Systems, Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, and Information Polity, and recently served the role of programme co-chair for the IFIP 8.6 conference on the transfer and diffusion of technology.
In terms of publicly engaging, he has in the past provided consultancy to the Council of Europe (COE) and European Union's (EU) Youth Partnership on issues of social inclusion and digitalisation, which included acting as Rapporteur for their 2018 conference, 'Connecting the Dots', as well as authoring several related publications.
Finally, Shane has been a collaborator on the SFI project SPRING (award: ‘17/SPR/5319’) led by Prof Kalpana Shankar in UCD. His role focused on understanding Irish experiences of academic industry collaborations (AIC), including inherent conflicts and tensions such as in challenges of boundary spanning, power dynamics, and differing missions/values of collaborating parties.
