TIM-troduction: Nevena Ivanović
Introducing Nevena Ivanović, PhD Candidate at the University of Groningen. Nevena also won the 2022 TIM Division Best Student Paper Award.
What are your research interests right now?
My main research motivation is to help employees, teams and organizations perform well under different challenges, including stress, disruptions, crises, as well as transitioning to new forms of working, including human-machine collaboration. At the moment, I am interested in the role of biofeedback in managing stress at the workplace, as well as optimizing human-machine interaction in high-risk and high-stress contexts.
What do you think is your most exciting contribution to academia?
I think the most exiting contribution I am bringing at the moment is my approach to organizational resilience that focuses on the effects of daily stressors and disruption accumulation on team and organizational performance. I collect and analyze communication and disruption event streams which allow me to follow how their fluctuation relates to performance changes. This approach brings novel insights into the effective ways to manage collaboration in real-time. This is essential to prevent escalation of daily issues into larger incidents, which can have particularly severe implications in organizations with critical functions in our society (critical infrastructures).
At the 2022 Conference you won an award from TIM. Tell us about the paper and why you think its findings are important.
In this paper, we are focusing on virtual hackathons, a promising collaboration model designed to enable teams to quickly expand their networks and get new ideas that might accelerate innovation. Yet, the extreme time pressure and uncertainty inherent to hackathons, combined with the virtual format, make it very difficult for teams to effectively exploit their external environment. Additionally, prior research does not provide insights into how could teams overcome these challenges. In this paper, we demonstrate that organizing external team communication in a bursty manner and limiting multicommunication helps teams perform better in virtual hackathons. Our findings contribute to the innovation and team literature by pointing to the importance of the appropriate timing rather than only the frequency of collaboration.
Tell us something personal about yourself.
In my free time, I practice tango, boxing, improv comedy, and I love spending time with my cat.
