I am interested in the ways in which the human resources are conceptualized, organized and managed. Specifically, my focus - since my Ph.D - has been the organization and management of the psycho-social work environment. Following 'old' insights from socio-technical theory, a main concern has been to broaden the focus from the psycho-social aspects of the work-environment to entail as well attentiveness to the socio-material aspects of everyday work and work organization.
Theoretically, I am inspired by ANT/science technology studies, Organization theory and Critical Management Studies.
I have taught the following courses: Human Resource Development, Organizational Analysis, Qualitative methods and philosphy of science. Furthermore, I have supervised both at Bachelors and Masters levels.
My primary areas of research have been within: Psycho social work environment/ worker well-being, HRM
Paradox pedagogy/Paradox theory, Leadership development.
I am currently employed as a civil servant within the Danish Working Environment Authority. This entails making inspections within a broad range of primarily public organizations and planning and teaching in competence development programmes for inspectors.
