Started September 2017, I am now working on the INTERACT project, funded by Novo Nordisk Foundation, to investigating the microfoundations of socioeconomic impact of university-industry relations, and aims to bring real transformations through the interactions in the field. Previously trained as a cultural analyst, I have been using ethnographic methods to uncover the symbolism in our social life to interpret and understand people, situations, processes and mechanisms through hands-on projects. My current research interest is centered on the concept and phenomenon of boundaries and knowledge in innovation processes, especially with a theoretical lens of practice, process, materiality and temporality.


I have been teaching Master's elective course Entrepreneurship and Innovation to Natural Science students, with a special focus on Human-centered approach, megatrends and problem formulation. I also teach Natural Science students how to gather data for market research and how to conduct qualitative interviews.

Fields of interest

Boundary; Materiality; Temporality; Organization Theory; Ethnography; Science
