Personal profile


My research focuses on working life, particularly within the public sector. I study developments and transformations of working life, professionalism and professional identity for public sector workers, in relation to new technological developments and developments in welfare state governance.

I have a special interest in the field of health and social care, where I have studied how ‘reabling’ approaches to health and care services, as well as the use of new care technologies, affect the work of health and care professionals, their relationships with clients and patients, and their opportunities to create dignified health and care services.

My research is primarily based on qualitative methods, especially interviews, ethnographic field studies and document analyses. My theoretical inspiration is drawn from critical sociological approaches to work, feminist care theories, and socio-material understandings of bodies and technologies in working life.


I teach and supervise student projects in the fields of Working Life Studies, Health Promotion, and in the Bachelor Programme in Social Sciences.
