Assoc. Prof. Nik Thompson

Discipline of Business Information Systems,

School of Management and Marketing
Curtin University, Australia


He is an Associate Professor and the Discipline Lead of Business Information Systems in Curtin Business School. Prior to Curtin he has held roles in industry as a Systems Consultant in the resources sector and in academia as a Chair of Information Security. His research and teaching converge in the area of Information Security. While his teaching is management and operations focussed, his research also considers the security of everyday computer users when interacting with a range of technologies and media.

As a Computer Scientist, his early work was technically focussed. He has developed and researched robotics, IoT, sensor network applications and created new equipment using medical technologies for psycho-physiological research. Through this, he gained an appreciation that people are the most crucial element for technology to be useful and to succeed. Since then, his work has been in the Human-Computer Interaction domain exploring the psychological, cognitive and affective aspects of computer use.

His research approach is quantitative, involving measures of human behaviours and perceptions to empirically determine the best ways to support every day individuals in a society where technology is ubiquitous. He has successfully applied these skills in many studies including smartphone and home computer security, privacy and surveillance, gender differences, information seeking and social media, publishing these findings in top-tier journals and conferences. These research projects share a common theme of understanding every day computer users needs to be able to empower them to have more effective, enjoyable and secure interactions with technology
