About me


  • My research embraces several, but connected, sub areas within Industrial Work
    Science. The core of my publications contributes to the sub areas work
    environment, organisational change, project management, digitalisation of
    work, management, leadership, and human resource management – all with a
    special focus on the work situation of the individual. I have mainly studied
    industrial settings, but since I have been working part time at Karolinska
    Institutet the last nine years I have also broadened the research perspective
    and included health care organisations and municipalities within my research.
    My research is mainly qualitative, but also includes quantitative research


  • My subject areas for teaching are: leadership, group development, stress and
    sustainable work, change management, and organisation. I teach in
    undergraduate courses at KI and Karlstad university. An overall perspective
    that can summarize my educational standpoint is what I want to accomplish
    with my teaching. I want to create an interest in my topic and give
    undergraduate students opportunities to become good leaders, and thus create
    sustainable jobs, i.e. work that is sustainable from both economic and human
    perspectives. Some examples of my teaching:
