What happens when "old" organizations meet "new" media? This question continues to be central to my research. Specifically, it has led to me primarily explore two types of organizations - political parties and media outlets. While new media such as the Internet and so-called social media have the potential to increase various forms of interactivity between senders and receivers, my research often takes a critical stance towards the sometimes simplified, hyped idea that such interactions take place simply because a new technological innovation is introduced. By using novel methods for online data collection, informed by solid conceptual designs, I am thus primarily interested in engaging with empirical data to improve our knowledge of the spread of those innovative practices that are enabled by new media.

My research interest concerns the question about what happens to the old institutions and structures of society in a digital environment. Primarily, my focus is on media policy (including innovation policies), economy, and management, and on social media and the way they transform institutionalized social roles.

My specialist field is the changes in the intersection among media and journalism at the one side, and commercial and technological developments on the other side. How are the media changing and developing in an era of digital transformation and market challenges? And how are media innovating within this development? A media management's perspective is often apparent in my research.

My PhD project “Journalistikk for markedet” (Journalism for the Market) examines the market forces’ impact on journalism. By material from and interviews with managers in the media houses VG in Norway and Aftonbladet in Sweden, their newspapers as well as online editions, I am studying their strategies for market oriented development of journalistic products. Their owner Schibsted’s perspective is included.

My PhD project, entitled 'Lost in Space: Social Media-Innovation and Minority Language Use' explored how users of minority languages are empowered to create new opportunities for communication in Social Media.  I'm particularly interested in exploring:

  • Processes of technological standardization through which users needs are determined and considered relevant;
  • Processes of technological instrumentalization and the empowering capabilities that users require in order to participate in these; and,
  • Processes of 'Social Media-Innovation' and how these are influenced by the hybrid commercial and social contexts in which they take place. 
  • I'm also interested in ethical issues related to researching computer mediated communication.

A driving motivation for my research has been – and still is - to make the communication between humans and computers as natural and convenient as possible.
I have therefore devoted my research to new human-machine interfaces, especially to speech-based and multimodal interfaces. These interfaces make many services more accessible and easier to use for normal able-bodied users  as well as disabled people, they open for new services and can save costs by automating manual services.
In the last few years I have worked with a wide range of usability issues in Telenor, focusing on multi-channel customer experience. In this context I have contributed in the development of a framework for service design called Customer Journey Mapping. I am currently working with service design and service innovation with special focus on multi-channel customer experience.

My research has centered around historical and sociocultural aspects of the changing practices involved in media innovation.  This I have studied in cultural institutions and in new learning context. I am especially interested in tranformations of museums and heritage site as part of innovations – and how social media brings a normative of participation that results in deep tensions between user and institutions, amateurs and professionals, youths and the establishment. Methodologically, I focus on developing participatory design methods that fit with these institutions – and their users. This brings an actions research approach to what I would call digital cultural heritage innovation.

I am leader of the Nordic network for knowledge triangulation, Culture KICK, financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers 2011-2014 – which for me bring another aspect of participatory approach to innovation studies.

The core themes of my research relate to human experience of digital media and their social and societal implications. I have in particular examined social media: social media practices among young people; use and non-use of social media among older people; the potential of social media as collaborative knowledge-sharing tools in organizations; social media as journalistic news-sources; and the potential democratic implications of social media. In order to identify user-patterns and consequences of media innovations we need to understand how humans make sense of new technologies and services. We might expect certain user-patterns because they are technically possible. Yet a close-examination of motivations, user-experiences, and organizational contexts reveals the importance of human agency as well as the materiality of media.

Topic for PhD-project: 

Idea-development in TV-production for cross-platform distribution. My project will explore the possibilities and needs for new methods in such creative processes.

I am planning to map out the successful and less successful attempts in TV-production for today's “new media”, hoping to combine this accumulated knowledge with theoretical analysis and practical experimentation. My theoretical framework is media design theory and theory about classical rhetoric as a design tool. 

Research interests:

Media innovation, media design, media convergence, genre innovation, production culture, creative processes.
