My research critically explores issues of workplace diversity, organizational inequality and power relations with a particular focus on the intersection of class, ethnicity, gender and professional training. I further more draw on 15 year of work experience with labor market integration and diversity management from both the public and private sector. My research departs from an organizational level analysis with an interest in how organizational diversity and inequality processes are embedded in organizational set-up and larger societal structures and discourses on difference and immigration. Methodologically I combine critical ethnography and action research/intervention-based methods to advance a problematizing and practitioner-relevant diversity research agenda departing from local contextualized cases. Within these topics I have collaborated with Copenhagen Business School, Stockholm School of Economics and San Diego State University on research on diversity work in a variety of Danish, Swedish and North American organizations. Currently I work as an industrial postdoc researcher for ISS A/S and Copenhagen Business School on diverse teams and their leadership on how to achieve diverse teams balancing gender, ethnicity, age and tenure with a focus on recruitment, onboarding, tenure and team leadership processes. 

- Teaching and supervision on both bachelor and master level predominantly within the topics of diversity management and critical diversity, social sustainability, HRM, organizational change, innovation and creativity, culture, identity and power in an organizational perspective, intervention-based research, critical  ethnography. 
- Process consultant for practical action-learning processes.
