  I am an Associate Professor and my main interests in research lie in the crossing of poetics and rhetoric as foundational to our everyday lives. In consequence, I tend to become interested in pretty much everything that I can understand in terms of Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.

Research Interests
Together with Associate Professors Kristina Tamm-Hallström from SCORE and Stockholm School of Economics and Maria Mårtensson from Stockholm University Business School and Financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) I am currently working with a project on the organization of management accounting and control in which we are interested about 1) what and how categories are established in organizations that implement multi-stakeholder management standards, 2) what (hidden) consequences such categories entail.
My other main interest revolves around the content of forms such as the scientific article (see publication list) and standards and/or guidelines such as the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) sustainability guidelines. I am interested in the stories that can be read from the forms/structures that are advocated by form/standard-setting communities and what they can tell us about the practices the aim to prescribe.
