Academic Interests

I am interested in understanding ICT-enabled processes of practice innovation and organisational change from a socio-technical perspective. I study technology through case study research using interpretive approaches and ethnographic methods; and theoretically I am interested in theories of technology, information infrastructures, institutional theory, and material semiotic approaches. I currently conduct research on the role of ICT in transforming information and communication practices in the healthcare context.


Higher education

I hold a PhD in Information Systems (2008), from the University of Oslo with a thesis titled: "Foregrounding heterogeneity: a performative approach to the coordination of distributed work and information infrastructures in use". In 2009 I have been a visiting reasercher at the School of Communication, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver, Canada.

Research Projects

I am currently affiliated with the C3 Centre for Connected Care 

Past Projects:

the InfraData project.
