RESEARCH

ResearchOver the years I have held various positions at the department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG) at the University of Gothenburg since 2005, where I am currently a full-time faculty member and associate professor. I also holds a position as associate professor at the Digital Media and Communication Research Group and the Culture Aesthetics Organizations and Society division at IT University of Copenhagen, where I was first employed as a postdoctoral fellow immediately after finishing his PhD. I have previously worked on projects for the department of Technology Management and Economics Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg (2007-2008) and the Institute for Prospective Technology Studies in Seville (2008-2009). Moreover, I have been a visiting researcher at Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ) at the University of Oxford (2011) and the Swedish Institute in Kavalla (2009). I have also served as visiting lecturer at the department for Journalism, Media and Communication at the University of Central Lancashire on multiple occasions (2010-2011). I currently serve on the editorial boards of three international peer-reviewed journals: Digital Journalism, Journal of Media Innovations and Mobile Media & Communication, and frequently also reviews submissions to other international peer-review journals, book publishers and research funding agents.

My interdisciplinary research focuses on the transformations and relationships between old and new media. I apply both qualitative and quantitative methods to the study of media organizations, their media content and services, as well as transforming media usage patterns. I research the evolving dynamics and interplay of journalism, ICTs and crisis communications on an individual-, generational- and societal level. I am especially fond of conducting longitudinal studies, making analyses based on the annual postal-based surveys (1986-2013) to the Swedish public by the SOM institute at University of Gothenburg as well as my dissertation case-study which traced the transforming sensemaking of mobile media over time among journalists, technologists and businesspeople at Göteborgs-Posten, mainly on the basis of conducting annual in-depth interviews from 2008 to 2011.
