Chalmers recruits new professor in Management of Digitalization

Listed as one of Sweden’s most influential women in technology, Robin Teigland focuses on how the convergence of emerging technologies challenges long-standing institutional structures in society.
Through this recruitment we truly strengthen our competences within Management of Digitalization and Entrepreneurship, says University President Stefan Bengtsson.
Robin Teigland, currently Professor at Stockholm School of Economics, has accepted the position as Professor in Management of Digitalization at the Department of Technology Management and Economics and will join Chalmers this fall.

Robin’s research interests reside at the intersection of strategy, technology, innovation and entrepreneurship. She focuses on how the convergence of emerging technologies such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, IoT, and smart robotics enable communities to create value outside of a firm’s traditional boundaries as well as challenge long-standing institutional structures in society.

– I am very pleased that we managed to recruit Robin Teigland to Chalmers. This area is strategically important for Chalmers and through this recruitment, we truly strengthen our competencies within Management of Digitalization and Entrepreneurship, says University President Stefan Bengtsson.

In 2017 and 2018 Robin Teigland was listed by the Swedish business magazine, Veckans Affärer, as one of Sweden’s most influential women, primarily in technology. She has also been nominated as one of the Global Top 50 Business Professors on Twitter.

Robin is originally from Nashville, Tennessee, and in her free time, she enjoys constantly learning from her five children as well as surfing longboard waves in Portugal and other sunny places around the world.

The recruitment was made possible through an investment by Chalmers Foundation.
