Welcome to our homepage!
We are both researchers and teachers in Industrial Management at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden. Aside from living together, we also run several joint professional projects within research, teaching, and consulting. Our research spans fields like project management, entrepreneurship, gender studies and leadership, usually studied from constructionist, individual or critical perspectives.
Web pages should always be under construction (that is the point of them, actually), so we'll keep building!
