Current research areas: Since 2010 I have worked primarily with research on HR and restructuring practices several industries. The latest research projekt, which started 2022 is about mentoring programs in public sector jobs that are difficult to recruit new employees to. The development of work practices are the focus of my research. Between 2016-2019 I was part of a research project concerned with Age Management and delyaing retirement, together with colleagues from Department of Sociology and Work Science. We analyzed age related HR and management narratives in public and private work organizations. I have also conducted research on ideologies, institutions and professional identities in the case of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) clinics. This is an example of the relationship between developments in Life Science and the institutionalization of clinical practices.The focus of my dissertation was managerial work among first- and second-line managers in health care. Their time use, work fragmentation and processes of power in the negotiations of time use were explored and analysed.
