Presentation

As an early-stage PhD Fellow at the Department of Digitalization, I am exploring the effects of “mood synchronicity” on task and relational outcomes in the context of digital collaboration. My project investigates how different media may enable or impede the alignment of affective states in computer-mediated collaboration and several related issues.

I hold a Master’s degree in Strategic Design & Entrepreneurship from Copenhagen Business School and the Royal Danish Academy of Design & Architecture, a BA in Information Management from CBS and a BA in Political and Social Sciences from Sciences Po (France). My Master’s thesis consisted of a qualitative analysis of the emotional reactions of employees who were forced to work from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the coping mechanisms used to avoid burnout. Overall, I am drawn to both qualitative and quantitative research methods and my research interests lie at the intersection between user experience, emotional processes, and workplace well-being.

Primary research areas
  • Computer-mediated communication and collaboration
  • Emotional contagion
  • Emotions and well-being in the workplace
