    Dr. Chunjia Han is a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Business Innovation at Birkbeck, University of London, UK. By focusing on the {application, development, impact} of digital technologies (e.g., big data analytics, AI, and social media) in influencing practices in business and economy, his research contributes to our knowledge on innovation management, tourism management, digital marketing and digital economy.

    Dr Han is the author or co-author of over 30 publications. His research has appeared in journals including IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, International Journal of Product Economics, Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Annals of Tourism Research, Journal of Business Research, and Asia Pacific Journal of Management, among others.

    He has been serving as a guest editor of special issue for 14 academic journals including Journal of Global Information Management, Journal of Advanced Transportation, International Journal of Engineering Business Management, and Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences.

    Dr Han has secured major grants (in total over £4 million) from research councils including EPSRC, ERC, EU Interreg, and NNSFC (National Natural Science Foundation of China) which involve collaborations both nationally and internationally.

    He has co-organised conferences and served as committee member for conferences/workshops including IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine, IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications, IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics, and The Web Conference. He currently serves as deputy director of the International Creative Management Committee. 

    Dr Han has over 15 years of experience of working with business development, strategic innovation and digital economy, both as a practitioner and an academic. He has provided consultancy services to both private and public sectors in Europe and China. In recent years, he has led and been closely involved with industry on a number of international projects related to digital transformation, data governance and digital marketing. These funded projects aim to help companies to innovate their business model and strategy, develop data governance policy and promote the application of digital technologies in solving industry practical challenges.
