Ismael Peña-López

Sóc l'Ismael Peña-López.

Sóc professor dels Estudis de Dret i de Ciència Política de la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, així com investigador a l'Internet Interdisciplinary Institute i l'eLearn Center de la mateixa. Des de novembre de 2013 estic a mitja jornada per a poder afegir-me a l’equip d’Open Evidence com a investigador i analista sènior.

Els meus principals interessos de recerca són l'impacte de les TIC a la societat (e-Readiness, divisòria digital), especialment en el Desenvolupament (e-Inclusió, ICT4D) i les institucions educatives (e-Learning, competència digital) i polítiques (e-participació, e-democracia).
