Institut for Organisation
My current research revolves around two main topics. On the one hand, I’ve since my PhD been preoccupied with the history and foundational problems of Organization Theory – in particular with what has happened to the core object of Organization Theory, i.e. ‘organization’.
On the other hand, I’m involved in a large research project on ‘the ethics of office’ in state service. In conjunction with this, my research explores the conditions for and critiques of bureaucratic office-holding, with a primary emphasis on Denmark. These two lines of research currently intersect in a study of anti-statist left- and right-wing critiques of formal organizational principles.

I supervise projects at bachelor and master levels. My key areas of expertise include: Management, organization, strategy, and administration within the public as well as the private sector. I have previously supervised projects on a wide range of topics such as, for instance, bureaucracy, co-creation, the history of organization theory, creativity, philosophy, and political economy.
