Personal profile

Research interests

Although a management scholar by training, I have never been able to summon much interest in the orthodoxy of management studies but have taken a critical and interdisciplinary approach focusing on how we organise our private and social lives. Now, thirty-odd years into my academic career, I consider myself an organizational and economic sociologist with a strong inclination towards the philosophy and history of organizing. Most of my work is theoretical, with occasional detours into qualitative empirical research. I have been employed at universities in Germany, the UK and now Denmark. I have written two monographies and published in some of the most prestigious organization studies journals.
