Theoretically, I research within the area of organizational theory focusing on projects and project management including project evaluation.

Empirically, I investigate a large number of projects including their contextual characteristics and management practices in a variety of organizational settings.

Methodologically, I partake in an engaged scholarship study based on a variety of mixed methods and draw on pragmatism and social constructivism.


Empirically, my PhD took point of departure in the financial crisis that marked the beginning of the 21st century. In specific, I investigated members of the financial industry and focused on their personal experiences and strategies during the crisis.

Methodologically, my PhD relied on an inductive approach based on qualitative data generation and analysis methods. In specific, I conducted interviews with members of the financial industry narrating their local stories of the global crisis.

Theoretically, my PhD applied an interpretive paradigm and centered on institutional legitimacy and organizational identity and death. In specific, I explored concepts relating to sensemaking, stigma and emotions.
