I started as Associate senior lecturer at the Department of Informatics at School of Economics and Management, Lund University, September 2009, focusing my future research efforts in studies about Enterprise Systems and Enterprise Resource Planning systems. I hold a PhD and a Licentiate degree in Information Systems Development from the Department of Management & Engineering at Linköping University and a Bachelor degree in Business Informatics from Jönköping International Business School.

My PhD thesis “Deciding on Sourcing Option for Hosting of Software Applications in Organizations” was defended in 2007. The PhD thesis reports a retrospective case study describing and explaining sourcing decision-making processes dealing with the question: Why and how organizations decide on specific sourcing options for software applications hosting.
