Barbara Bergström Chair in Educational Leadership and Excellence. My research is on the Economics of Education, Entrepreneurship and Organization Theory. My current research focuses on, among other things, organizational diversity, leadership and working environment in schools, and the 'turnaround' of poor-functioning to more well-functioning schools.

I study theoretical, practical and policy implication of these streams of research and communicate this in articles, books, case studies and public policy papers. I have lectured in Europe, Asia, North America, Australia, and consulted for NGOs, governments, and private firms.

I head the Center for Educational Leadership and Excellence
