I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Informatics at Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM).

The overarching perspective of my research interests is how to improve business with Business Technology (BT) in modern organisations. That is, modern organisations that succeed to master the digital transformation seem to have a common denominator – they have perceived that business and ICT are in total fusion. They no longer divide business and ICT; instead, they see it as Business Technology. Hence, BT is a key component to success or failure within the landscape of modern business. Without the understanding of the use and effects of BT, any manager will suffer the ongoing transformation of today’s business.

This interest of mine once began with a dissertation on what kind of species mobile computing is, accompanied with design propositions on how to develop mobile information systems for the digital ranger. After that, my focus has broadened to also include other components of BT, such as ERP systems, ITC-enabled business models, data/process models, m-Health as well as ICT-based business innovations.

I belong to the Supporting-LIFE research project, investigating the use of mobile technologies to improve healthcare in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Besides research, I also teach at bachelor and master level in the department, chiefly in system development, database design and process modelling.

I have been a guest lecturer at University of Calabria (Italy) in project management, at Copenhagen Business School (Denmark) in system development, University of Verona (Italy) in enterprise resource planning systems, and at Deusto University (Spain) in business process modelling.
