I started my doctoral studies at Umeå University in August 2011 and defended my thesis in February 2017. Professor Stewart Clegg (University of Technology Sydney) was the faculty opponent for my defense. During my doctoral studies, I spent four months at Stanford University, the USA as a visiting student researcher at the Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research. 

Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Management and Wallander postdoc fellow at Umeå School of Business and Economics. My research focuses on organizational paradoxes [How do organizations and their members deal with contradictory demands?] organization space [How does space affect interactions within organizations? How do interactions inform how spaces are configured?]. Currently, I am working on interactive spaces where individuals with diverse knowledge, background, and prior experience, interact and influence each other in the new venture creation process. In this project, I (along with my colleagues @USBE) am trying to understand, explain, and influence the effective organizing of support systems towards facilitating new venture creation. My research has been published in academic journals such as Organization Studies, Research in the Sociology of Organizations, and European Management Journal, among others.
