Academic interests

My research interests are within professions and professionalism, with a particular focus on knowledge in work. My Ph.d-project concerns knowledge in nursing.

Research questions that I explore in my work concerns how professionals meet recent developments in the provision and organisation of health and welfare services, as increased standardisation and use of innovative health technologies.

Furthermore, I find interest in qualitative methods, particularily ethnographic and phenomenological approaches.
