My research endeavours primarily involve conducting ethnographic studies in informatics on the use of information systems in information-intensive organizations and society. My doctoral research delved into the intricate landscape of human work practices, emphasizing the role of computational artefacts in fostering cooperation and collaboration. Current explorations encompass workplace learning and hybrid working models, expanding on the implications of my earlier findings.
