Researching the effects of digitalization
As a research analyst I work with organisations such as the Stockholm School of Economics and Energiforsk (The Swedish Energy Research Centre), focusing on how technology, in particular digital technology, interacts with and changes the conditions for individuals, businesses, and society.
The research activity is highly rewarding, but 's also clear that however interesting it may be, research can make a difference only if it gets attention from a certain amount of people. And apart from the research itself, a central aspect of my work consists in communicating the results to a wide audience, in written reports and as a speaker.
Presently, I work in three projects:
• The Internet and its Direct and Indirect Effects on Innovation and the Swedish Economy is a three-year project funded by The Internet Foundation in Sweden (IIS) and led by Professor Robin Teigland.
Among the reports so far are:
- 'The Rise and Development of FinTech – Accounts of Disruption from Sweden and Beyond' (a book published by Routledge).
• The effects of digitalization and electric vehicles on the transportation industry with regard to work and education – a research project commissioned by Transportföretagen, The Swedish Confederation of Transport Enterprises.
The report can be downloaded here (Swedish only).
