I am an Associate Professor of Technology and Innovation Management at the Mads Clausen Institute at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). Before joining SDU, I was a postdoc at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and doctoral student at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). I received my venia legendi from TUM and my Phd from TUHH.
My research focuses on open and user innovation, idea generation and evaluation, and technology- driven innovation and exaptation. In research and consulting I have worked with companies such as Siemens, Osram, Audi, EWE, Mammut, Panasonic, and others. My research has been published in Research Policy, R&D Management, Creativity and Innovation Management, and other outlets.
