I am an PhD in Business Administration. Currently, I also work as an administrator at the Land Registration at Lantmäteriet (the Swedish Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registration Authority)

Area of interest

My research is primarily about real estate and business economic aspects related to information, including decision-making. As part of this, I have studied professional property appraisers and their perceptions of various forms of information and assessment of the information.

In both research context and practical application, I have a great interest in property information, including the value of properties in various situations and forms as well as its relation to society, the property market and the stakeholders who make decisions based on the information.

Research

Authorized property appraisers (un)conscious thoughts of influence of commercial property valuation – in a professionalization context (working title), which currently consists of four published scientific articles, and is based on my previously published licentiate thesis.

I have previously researched on insurance, climate change and demographic change related to housing and have been included in the research projects:

The insurance industry and climate change: short- and long-term consequences of homeowners' risk perceptions, ability to pay and risk behavior for the insurance industry (2015 – 2017), together with researchers from the research centres CER, FGV and RCR. Founded by Länsförsäkringsbolagens forskningsstiftelse.

What affects the elderly's choice of housing (2014 – 2015), together with Hans Lind (the Royal Institute of Technology), Sabine Gebert-Persson (Uppsala University) and Maria Kulander (University of Gävle). Founded by Länsförsäkringsbolagens forskningsstiftelse.

To turn the evil into good - opportunities for innovation in central Norrland due to demographic changes (2014), together with researchers from the research centres CER, FGV and RCR. Founded by the EU regional funds.

Other information

I am by my work at Lantmäteriet involved in a project for five years in Liberia ”Capacity Building for Inclucive Land Administration and Management” (ILAMP). My area in the project is land administration, in which I work jointly with the Land Registration staff at the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) in Liberia and in Sweden. I will, for instance, train trainers and advise, review and propose changes to the land administration process by streamlining laws, regulations and processes to ensure safe and legal handling of documents and by defining and implementing a standard operating procedure for land registration.
