Personal profile


My research interests are within management accounting and control, especially with focus on public sector organizations. More specifically, my research focuses performance management, behavioral aspects of management accounting, public sector reforms and professions. My empirical interest has primarily been the health care sector. Theoretically I have focused on new institutional theory, translation, diffusion and actor-network theory, professional theory, and more general theories on public sector control.


My main area of teaching is management accounting and control, especially within the areas of cost accounting, performance measurements and management control systems. My teaching expertise is closely related to my research. I have extensive teaching experience from all levels (from introductory level to master and PhD courses). In addition, I have supervised and examined numerous bachelor and master theses.


I have been invited speaker both locally and nationally by politicians, civil servants, and professions. Among other things I have been invited to the Ministry of Social Affairs, Ministry of Finance, The Swedish National Financial Management Authority, and to different networks of Municipality Boards and Municipality Directors. In addition, I have experience from educating on executive education and to write popular science articles and reports. From 2022 I sit on the editorial board for Organisation & Samhälle.
