Recent publications #5

Here is the regular update on my key research outputs from the last 12 months. I continued to write mostly about AI and Big Data as managerial and social phenomena and as mechanisms for studying markets.

New paper: Capabilities, opportunities and motivations that drive food waste disposal practices: A case study of young adults in England

Why is that so many young adults in England still generate a large amount of food waste, and fail to dispose of food waste separately from other waste? This was the question that inspired a research project conducted by a team at Brunel University London (of which I was a member), in collaboration with the … Continue reading New paper: Capabilities, opportunities and motivations that drive food waste disposal practices: A case study of young adults in England

About choice of words and citation levels

For instance, calling July 19th “Freedom Day” doesn’t really mean that Covid-19 is no longer prevalent, or dangerous. Cases, hospitalisations or, indeed, deaths, didn’t dramatically drop between Sunday 18th and Monday 19th. Yet, the “Freedom Day” … Continue reading About choice of words and citation levels

April 2021 round-up

This month has a taste of fresh start, for me. The teen went back to university; the kiddo went back to class teaching (even if it was delayed because of a false positive Covid rapid test result); the lockdown restrictions started easing; the husband received a fantastic job offer; and I had my first Covid … Continue reading April 2021 round-up

New paper: Leveraging machine learning in the global fight against money laundering and terrorism financing: An affordances perspective

There is a lot of enthusiasm about the potential of artificial intelligence in general, and machine learning in particular, to solve just about any problem on Earth. Thus, a special issue of the Journal of Business Research is looking at the potential of those technologies to meet the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals; and … Continue reading New paper: Leveraging machine learning in the global fight against money laundering and terrorism financing: An affordances perspective
