Research profile

My research mainly concerns collaboration between different actors in inter-organizational construction projects. Central concepts that the research includes are procurement and project management and how these can influence and promote various effects such as innovation and sustainability. The focus has during the past years been on how public clients through their actions can create collaboration between actors, which provides conditions for development and innovation.


I teach in various construction processes such as design and production, mainly in our civil engineering master programme, but also in our two higher education diploma programmes (Works Management in Civil Engineering, and Built Environment). I am also responsible for undergraduate education for the Department of Industrial and Sustainable Construction.
