I am Professor in Information Studies at Lund University. Before starting at Lund University the year 2005, I worked as a researcher and lecturer at the University of Borås. I have also been a part time professor at the University of Boras. I defended my PhD thesis at University of Gothenburg in 2003.

In my current research I mainly focus on the credibility of digital information, digital cultures, information seeking and learning, participatory media, and knowledge building. One issue that interests me is how established knowledge actors - such as schools, libraries, encyclopaedias, and publishers - handle the challenges of new media and people's changing expectations that come with it.

I teach in our ALM-masters programme, particularly in library and information studies. I see it as my main challenge in teaching to prepare new generations of librarians and information specialists (including archivists and museum workers) for the changes the sector(s) is undergoing.
