Ella Hafermalz is a postdoctoral researcher and sessional lecturer at The University of Sydney Business School. Her research focuses on how new technologies are being integrated in the workplace and how networked communications are informing reconfigurations of work and understandings of the "office".

Ella draws on interdisciplinary literatures to problematize dominant understandings of how online and offline worlds come together in the workplace, with a particular interest in how technology is involved in "the work of belonging". Ella is an active member of the Digital Disruption Research Group and the Sociomateriality Debating Group.
