Through my research, I aim at answering the question about how datafication and digitalization transform organizations and institutions. How do data traces inform decision-making practices in particular organizational contexts, and how should we understand such changes in a broader, structural perspective? My empirical domain is mainly on the news-media industry, which I have researched throughout my entire scholarly career. (See the Research section for more specific information).

I am Assistant Professor at the IT University of Copenhagen (where I am part of the Digital Design Department and the Design, Innovation and Digitalization Lab, DID-LAB). I serve as chair of SMiD (the Association of Media Researchers in Denmark) and co-opted board member of emma (the European Media Management Association).
