I am doctor of Research Policy and have a Habilitation in Sociology. I teach and do research in organizational sociology with some emphasis on the sociology of science. My current research is focused on the multifaceted relationships between science and society, and how it changed in the process of society's modernization. In this work, and in teaching, I make use of the breadth of classic sociological theory, especially organizational sociology.



I teach organization studies on bachelor level, as course director of Strategic Organizing (FEKG11) and occasional teacher on other courses as well as thesis supervision.
