MY BOOK, The Power of citizens and professionals, IS NOW PUBLISHED AS PAPERBACK.

I am a Professor of sociology at Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and have a background in anthropology (MA) and sociology (PhD) from the University of Copenhagen. My research specialization is identities in organizations. Besides chairing the Professor’s Association at CBS, I am a board member of DFF and VIVE. 

Besides focusing on identity negotiations in organizations, I am qualified in the research fields of career, gender and network in academia, sociology of professions and power as well as in the research fields of qualitative methodology and analysis. Recently, I have completed a research project on negotiation of organizational identities in homeless shelters. Results from this recent study has been published in British Journal of Sociology (2019), Journal of Classical Sociology and in Symbolic Interaction (2020). The project was funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark. My latest paper can be found here Sociology of Health and Illness.

Currently I am working on a research project on career, network and gender in Academia together with prof. Margaretha Järvinen. We have just completed the first round of interview with 100 associate professors and have begun the analytical work.

My publication record includes books, articles and book chapters in English and Danish. Over the years, I have been a columnist for the Danish magazines for psychologists ‘Psykologi Nyt’ and social workers ‘Socialrågiveren’, as well as for the Danish newspapers ‘Information’ and ‘Weekendavisen’. Currently, I am affiliated with ‘Information’ where I review research books on a regular basis. 

My teaching covers a PhD course on Qualitative Analysis (every January) and lecturing for master students attending CBS’s educational programs of cand. merc. psych. and cand. soc. HRM. Finally, I teach at Master in Public Governance (MPG) at CBS, which is a master program for managers in the public sector.
