Background

Babak is Professor of Informatics and Director of CENTRIC at Sheffield Hallam University and Fellow of British Computer Society. He graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in Software Engineering, and later gained considerable commercial experience as a Strategy Analyst and Methodology Director for several companies. He consolidated this experience by obtaining a Masters degree (with distinction) in Information Systems in Management and a PhD in Information Systems. Babak has more than 100 referred publications in international journals and conferences on information systems with specific focus on knowledge management (KM).

He is member of editorial boards of three international Journals, Chair and programme committee member of several international conferences. He has extensive and hands on experience in development, management and execution of KM projects and large international security initiatives (e.g. combating terrorism and organised crime, cyber security, public order and cross cultural ideology polarisation). He has co-edited two recent books on intelligence management – Intelligence Management: Knowledge Driven Frameworks for Combating Terrorism and Organised Crime, and Strategic Intelligence Management: National Security Imperatives and Information and Communications Technologies.
