I am a PhD candidate at the Unit for Bioentrepreneurship at the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME). My research interests include the management of intellectual property rights at the intersection of academia and industry, the role of academic researchers in patenting and commercialisation, the use of patent data in the evaluation of technology transfer activities and the organisation of innovation support at universities. Under the umbrella of the Karolinska Institutet Intellectual Property (KIIP) project, together with Charlotta Dahlborg, I have traced the patenting activity at Karolinska Insitutet between 1995 and 2010 (see details below). At the Unit for Bioentrepreneurship, I get to apply my previous work experience in the life science industry and develop new skills needed to solve our research challenges.

My research takes its departure in the ongoing debate on how to evaluate academic research production. In particular I am curious about how indicators based on patent information can be applied in research evaluation and resource allocation in the academic context. To investigate my research topics, I combine purely quantitative patent analytics with exploratory interview methods.
Karolinska Institutet Intellectual Property (KIIP) project
The KIIP-project is a large mapping study of all inventions and inventors at KI between 1995 and 2010. It provides unique information of the patent productivity at Karolinska Institutet, transfer of patents, research collaboration. It also develops methods to evaluate academic research which provides insights to university benchmarking, innovation support development and resource allocation.
