Hey there! I'm a multidisciplinary academic with a research and teaching focus on engineering, design, and business. I believe in learning by doing, and this belief is reflected in my teaching methods. As a consequence, in 2018 my colleagues and I established Nordic Rebels, an award-winning movement transforming learning. My research interests focus on visual methodologies, management and creativity in game companies, design practices in MNCs, and a couple of dodgy side projects. ”
