My passion for strategic opportunities drives me where innovations, especially IT or digitalization, transform businesses. I have more than 30 years of experience in international organizations. 
My entrance into academia is aimed to try and bridge both academia and businesses.
My research focus regards ERP systems, Information Infrastructures and platforms. 
I hold an Industrial Ph.D. which I did in collaboration with Maersk as the industrial company focusing on improving containerized shipping by designing, prototyping and piloting new IT solutions. 
My current focus is to growth e-export for Danish companies utilizing a dedicated platform.
