Department of Organization
I am interested in the practical life of organization theory. My research revolves around how organizational theory and devices are used in- and shape organizational realities.
Nearly all my academic work has evolved around how the state is made up and how the state relates to the citizens. I look at how ‘state devices’ such as segmentation models, risk management and differentiated treatments are used to service and regulate citizens. Particularly, I am interested in how tax administrations regulate. In my PhD research I have focused on how tax compliance (or non-compliance) is being constructed as tax inspectors interact with taxpayers.
Methodologically, I have a preference for using ethnography and in-depth interviews. The material gathered in this way produce vivid and surprising findings which I find it interesting to work with.
