I'm a sociology PhD specialized in social network analysis. In my dissertation (Stockholm University 2013) I studied the social networks of local elites - politicians, civil servants, corporate leaders, etc - in Swedish municipalities. Since than I have moved into the field of innovation research. I am currently working on a project analyzing collaborative innovation networks in Swedish industry from the 1970s and onward, using the Swinno-database maintained at the Department of Economic History, Lund University.
