Research

I currently work as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Informatics, Lund University.

I received my PhD degree from Linnaeus University. I have a Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Växjö University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from South East European University. I have also worked in the industry as a software engineer and a database administrator.

My research is within the area of Information Systems Security, which concerns one of the most crucial resources of our human and social affairs: Information. My focus is on information systems security in organizations, with the objective to explore and understand employees’ compliance and noncompliance behaviour with information security policies. Thus, my intention is to explore the role of insecurity of information in organizations that many times contributes to problems in a disorderly fashion, often occurring through information technology.

I am an affiliated senior with the Swedish Research School of Management and IT (MIT), and a committee member of the IFIP 9.2. Currently, I am also acting as a special issue editorial review board for the European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS) Special Issue on Security and Privacy in 21st Century Organisations.

4. Briefly describe development work in education – renewal of curriculum and/or pedagogical development:

Since taking the position as Programme Director for the Undergraduate BISD programme, I took the chance to study how the programme was designed, what changes were applicable during the period the programme has been running successfully, by also having in mind how we could continue designing a new curriculum and a new program based on the work of Bo Andersson. 

 

The interesting part is that we also took an academic stance in two forms. One from an educational – action oriented point of view; one from the research – justification point of view. 

I consider that such input will be crucial for re-designing and bringing alive a new program in the near future.

8. Briefly describe your work with IT-supported teaching and learning 

I manage my courses via Live@Lund, by handling everything from communication to submission of student’s work, thus involving email conversations to the minimum. I have started to learn Canvas and I do look forward to migrate to the new platform and handle my student collaboration there.
