What challenges do you focus on in your research? 
My research focuses on how law firms and legal organisations transform in digitalization. 

How do you address this challenge?
I want to follow the organisations on their digitization journey, to create an understanding of the challenges. But also, to show the fantastic opportunities that digitization brings. Because it’s not only about turning analogue into digital – it´s also about changing business models and changing mindsets. 

What would you like to achieve with your research?
The legal profession is in need of change. I hope that my research will help firms and organisations in their digital transformation, and I also hope that my research will help improve the quality and accessibility of legal services.
