Head of department and docent in Informatics. Conducts research on digitalisation of society with a focus on digital transformation and innovation, the Internet of Things and smart services.
I am an associate professor (docent) in Informatics and since 2018 head of the department. I am also a member of the Swedish Center for Digital Innovation. My research interest is the digitalisation of society with a focus on digital transformation and innovation, the Internet of Things and smart services. In collaboration with industrial companies and the public sector, I explore how digitized products affect work, organization and create opportunities for innovative value-creating processes. I defended my dissertation in 2010 which focused on digitized products in the process industry and over the years I have been a project manager for many projects with a focus on how new technology such as the Internet of Things enables new services in the industry. In recent years, I have also collaborated with the public sector where we have explored smart real estate services based on different types of sensor solutions. I have been the editor of the Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems since 2019 and during 2022 I am the editor in chief.
My research has received awards such as the AIS senior scholars award for best IS journal paper 2009, paper of the year award in Information & Organization and best paper award at the IRIS 27 conference. I have published in journals as research has been published in journals such as European Journal of Information Systems, Information & Organization, Information Systems Journal, International Journal of Actor-Network Theory and Technological Innovation, International Journal of Operation & Production Management, International Journal of Systems Assurance Engineering and Management, Journal of Information Technology Research and Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.
As head of department, I lead the department's management team and am responsible for, among other things, personnel issues, work environment, finances, business planning, employment, quality work and more. The tasks are very varied and include, among other things, employee interviews, salary interviews, rehabilitation matters, leading workplace meetings, budget planning, financial follow-up, job interviews, etc. People from the management team and a number of administrators also participate in this work.
