Presentation

My work is located at the intersection of digitalization, economic sociology and international political economy. My research focuses on digitalization processes in the insurance sector and on the organization of cyber risk.

For the past years, I have found particular interest in studying market- and professional dynamics in the context of emerging transnational issue areas.

My current focus is on the digital transformation of insurance work. In this context, I am working on a project with Leonard Seabrooke and in collaboration with several Danish universities. https://algoritmer.org/

I take inspiration from diverse research traditions, including sociological approaches to knowledge and risk, and institutional theory.
