Background and activities

Research Interests

My training, research, and policy interests focus on Well-being and sustainable welfare development. Especially, I focus on relational welfare and well-being focusing on citizenship, public value, and social justice. Furthermore, I am interested in recovery in mental health and substance use. I am also interested in family therapy and relational therapies. I do also research within leadership, organisational factors and evaluation capcity building in public sector orgnaisations (New Public Governance). I am also focusing on the theories of science, qualitative research methods, and the use of participatory action research and citizen science methodologies.
