I defended my thesis at the University of Gothenburg in 2003 and have been Professor of Information Studies at Lund University since 2012.

In my research I am interested in information practises, source criticism & trust, media & information literacy, digital culture, information seeking, and knowledge formation and credibility. In recent years I have particularly researched the role of search engines in everyday life (Invisible search and Online Search Engines: The Ubiquity of Search in Everyday Life) and media and information literacy (Paradoxes of Media and Information Literacy: The Crisis of Information).

I teach in the ALM master's program and am responsible for the PhD program in Information Studies. An important challenge I am involved with is preparing future librarians and other information professionals for the changes the sector is undergoing. Through doctoral education, I am committed to the development of the discipline and to new generations of researchers.
