(ON LEAVE)

The reason I study technology relates to its significance in the world. The ways in which we understand, build, use and govern technology determine whether we create environmentally, socially and economically sustainable human organizations and societies. The technologies we build and employ influences how we organize our human collectives, but also how we co-exist with other living beings and the earth itself. Therefore I wish to stimulate ethical, reflexive and sustainable practices of technology design and use.

My research has concerned the introduction of information and communication technologies (digital technologies)  in organizations, mainly in the healthcare sector. I have studied the process of introduction as a learning and transformation process, where the organizationˋs members work to make sense of and utilize the possibilities of technology. A core challenge is the complexity caused by the fact that ICT are not single, standalone entities but connected into vast webs of interconnected systems and socio-technical relations. These "information infrastructures" pose challenges to design, development, use and management of technologies, and thus the research has addressed the handling of complexity and unintended consequences..

In my most recent projects I have examined how the new "patient-oriented" healthcare emerges, as well as the growth and evolution of data platforms for health care data.
