Bio/Research

Lynne Siemens' thesis focuses on entrepreneurship and small business issues on Vancouver Island. Specifically, she is examining how the island’s rural and remote enterprises overcome the challenges they face by virtue of their location outside urban areas.

In addition to this research, she has also worked with several teams within the Digital Humanities community. Several years ago, she worked with a Canadian-wide academic team to examine the credibility of electronic publishing and later extended this work to the examination of software research tools needed by humanities computing scholars in Canada. Lynne has built on this work further by developing a research project with UVic, UofT, and University College London that explores research teams within the digital humanities environments from an organizational behaviour perspective.

In her research and teaching, Lynne has applied her experience in economic development with the Federal Government. Her work there included evaluating business plans and granting funds, marketing websites, researching policy issues, and acting as a liaison between government and business/industry interests with the aim of creating an environment supportive for small business development.
