My general research interests are within organization and management studies and qualitative research methods such as phenomenological-interpretative approaches. I am particularly interested in and have published on topics such as reflections and ignorance in managerial work; the role of critical research in organizational practices; the impact of digitalisation and technology on organizations and methodological questions such as source criticism in interview based research. During 2016 and 2017 I will coordinate and work with an interdisciplinary research group studying the impact of the digital age on work and organizations.


I teach on all levels from undergraduate to post-graduate. My main area of teaching is organization and management studies for example creativity and innovation, organization theory and methods.
