Presentation

With a research focus on cultures, identity constructions, communication and learning processes, I have created a bridge between my educational background in the humanities and my present position as an international business scholar. I have been involved in longitudinal case studies of socio-cultural integration processes following international mergers and acquisitions and have written extensively about how managers and employees make sense of and give sense to complex organizational changes.

I was director of the strategic research programme “Cultural Intelligence as a Strategic Resource” (2008-2011), where we studied intercultural learning processes among managers and employees in globalizing Danish companies, as well as the organizational conditions for developing cultural awareness and sensitivity.

I am principal  investigator in the ethnographic studies of global development teams conducted within the strategic research programme ‘Next Generation Technologies for Global Software Development’ (2011-2016) (www.nexgsd.org). This project is a collaborative effort between CBS, the IT University of Copenhagen and Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, and some global IT companies.

Supervision

 I supervise MSc and PhD students with projects within my primary research areas.
