My mission is to create knowledge and understandings of the phenomena of practices in life, work, and work life practices, particularly during technology innovations and during sustainability transitions and implementations. I study practitioner logics, emergence, and co-creation with qualitative methodologies and adopt a practice theoretical approach.
Microplastics and health are particular emerging topics which interest me.
