I have an educational background within philosophy and media communication from Umeå University. After receiving bachelor degrees in these subjects, I used them as a basis for a teaching degree at Mid Sweden University. After working as a high school teacher and web editor / content strategist in a Swedish municipality I initiated my PhD studies in 2014. In 2019 I defended my thesis in information systems with the title "The Relation Between Digital Technology and Values: Thinking Through Multiple Technologies". The thesis won the first runner up award in the Swedish Information Systems Academy's Börje Langefors-award 2020.

Background

- Bachelor in philosophy, and media communication.
- Master of education.
- Degree of Licentiate in Information Systems.
- PhD in Information Systems.

Area of interest

- Philosophy of technology
- Values and risks related to digital government / e-Government
- Digital maturity in the manufacturing industry

Research

I am currently working as a part time researcher at Mid Sweden University. This involves performing research and acting as a secondary PhD student supervisor in the e-Government / digital government area. The research is conducted within the Forum for digitalization (FODI) research group.
