Personal profile


My research interests include organizational control, branding, gender and sexuality in organizations, craft-based organization and qualitative methods. I am engaged in three reserach projects. 1) I am in the final phase of a project named "Managing diversity in the Swedish police," 2)  since 2018 I am running (with Jon Bertilsson and Katie Sullivan) a project named "Brand orientations in the public sector," and 3) I recently embarked on a project entitled "Exploring craft in search of alternative and sustainable forms of organizing" (with Stephan Schaefer, Carys Egan-Wyer and Anselm Schneider).


I have taught organization theory extensively on all levels, from introductory- to PhD-courses. Currently, I am the head of a masters course in CSR and Sustainable Organization, and a PhD course named "Qualitative Data Analysis and Theorization". 


My research has been published in variuos academic outlets, such as Gender, Work & Organization, Human Relations, Organization, Organization Studies and Scandinavian Journal of Management. I am also reaching out to a more general audience through teaching. I have taught management for police officers on the national leadership program of the Swedish police. I have also been involved in management education for the Danish police, taught on a managment program for Swedish public servants, on variuos executive education programs, as well as on a business program for newly arrived academic immigrants.
