My main research interest lies in the study of endogenous innovation and technological change in the long 20th century (1890-2010). Parts of this work has been to construct and further develop a Swedish innovation output database (Sjöö, Taalbi, Kander, Ljungberg, 2014). My research seeks to combine micro and macro analysis and statistical and qualitative information from innovation biographies to study the driving forces of technological and structural change. The dynamics of the evolution of innovations is studied in a long-run perspective through focusing on innovation networks, technological systems and development blocks.
My teaching experience spans undergraduate and master level courses in general economic history, innovation, environmental history, quantitative methods and general historical methodology. I am currently the course convenor of the master course Economics of Innovation and bachelor course Technological and Social Change.
