Curriculum

Summary and Research Interests

Hej! I serve as an Assistant Professor in the Business IT Department of the IT University of Copenhagen since April 2017. In my current research, I study blockchain-enabled creative work on next generation social media platforms. In the past and ongoing, I studied emergent human practices in the context of digital innovation. I am generally interested in studying phenomena related to the design, development, and use of innovative information systems in organizations. I am open to many different research methodologies, but I am mostly familiar with qualitative research (interpretive field studies, interviews, coding, grounded theory) and design-oriented research.
