Præsentation
The main concerns in my research are how organizations learn from, improvise in response to, and make sense of innovations and unexpected events. In the beginning of my career, I focused on how organizations conceptualize and develop innovations, but a little more than ten years ago I began to focus on how organizations prepare for and address emergencies. I pursue my research agenda in studies of crowd safety at large music festivals, Arctic offshore emergencies, and more recently organizational response and adaptation during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. For the purpose of furthering these research agendas through multi-disciplinary research, I participated in the founding of Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research (COPE), which was establish in the autumn of 2012, in collaboration between Copenhagen Business School and University of Copenhagen.
 
I publish my research results in leading international journals, and disseminate these results to practice in different ways. For example, Rasmus Dahlberg (Royal Danish Defence College) and I have conceptualized a learning and dialogue game on Arctic Search and Rescue, based on research results from the NORDRESS project.
 
From September 1. to November 30., my office hours are Wednesday from 2 pm. to 4 pm. This will usually also be the hours where I answer incoming mails regarding administrative issues and handled inquiries about supervision.
