Short presentation

Teaches courses in Industrial management. Main research interest is digitalisation and how it influences price models, business models and business ecologies. Also currently studying organisations' management control systems for sustainable development. Participates in Uppsala University's graduate school in Sustainable Development.

Academic merits: Docent

Received a PhD in 2007 with a thesis on how digitization has transformed the graphic industry. Carried out the graduate studies at Economic Information System (EIS), Linköping University and during this time also associated to the Swedish research school of Management and IT (MIT). Worked as a Lecturer and Assistant professor at Campus Gotland 2003-2020. During these years I, in addition to research and education, was also active as head of department, director of studies and undergraduate program manager. Since August 2020 employed at the Department of Civil Engineering and Industrial Technology in Uppsala.

For the past ten years, I and four colleagues have been researching how digitalisation influence organisational price models and how these can be designed to be in line with its business model and the business ecology that surrounds the organisation. We have documented the experiences from this project in both books and articles and are now continuing to develop methods for price model design in close collaboration with both companies and public organizations. We do this through a collaboration that we call CASIP (Center for Advanced Studies of Innovative Price models).

From 2020 I will also be part of Uppsala University's new multidisciplinary graduate school in Sustainable development. Here I am involved in the project Digital innovation for sustainable consumption (DISCO). In that context, I also study how organizations design management control systems for sustainable development.
