The number and relevance of projects is growing at a staggering pace. This phenomena transformed organizations and is today changing the nature of social and economic action in society. Accompanying this development is the need to organize for projects, and to theorize about it. I study human and organizational behaviour in projects and develop behaviour-centric organizational contexts for projects.

I am Project Studies scholar, that is, I am part of the research community that studies projects, programs and portfolios. My empirical contexts are in projects and project organizing across different industrial contexts, in particular, large engineering projects, IT, construction and wind industries. My research earned international awards and led to over 50 publications, most of which in the key project journals and conferences.

In the recent years, I came to recognise the relevant of decisions and behaviours in decisions to projects, and have since studied how decisions happen in projects, and how objects, and in particular, visualizations, can inform (and misinform) decisions.


My office hours: Thursdays 13.00 - 15.00.
