My research focuses on human behavior within organizations. In particular I focus on knowledge sharing, motivation, and how physical structures - such as the layout of offices - influence both knowledge sharing and motivation. I draw on theories from organization theory, psychology, and social psychology, and I do both qualitative and quantitative studies. The empirical focus ranges from small and medium sized private companies, to large private and public organizations. My teaching activities reflect my research interests, and I mainly teach courses on organization theory, and knowledge sharing.

Primary research areas
  • Collaboration
  • Knowledge Sharing
