PhD Computer Science, 1972 Royal Holloway College
Ian Angell was Professor of Information Systems at the London School of Economics from 1986 until his ‘retirement’ in September 2011.
Prior to this he researched and taught Computer Science at Royal Holloway College, and University College London. On ‘retirement’ he was made a Professor Emeritus at the LSE and continues to write books and articles, give interviews, and travel the world consulting and on speaking engagements. His work concentrates on organizational and national IT policies, on strategic information systems and on computers and risk (both opportunities and hazards), particularly the systemic risks inherent in all socio-technical systems and the security threats posed to organisations by the rapidly diffusing international information infrastructure. He is in great demand as a speaker on the international lecture circuit. Ian was a member of Royal Holloway’s staff until 1986.
