About me – Eva Lindell

As a lecturer in Business Administration, I have a masters in Human Resources (2000) from Gothenburg University and a PhD in Business Administration (2016) from Mälardalen University. I have many years’ experience of working with Human Resources in various organizations, mainly in the public sector. In 2008 I was employed at the Human Resources Department at Mälardalen University and in 2009 I was accepted to the PhD program at the same university.

In December 2016 I defended my thesis Business as a Study Choice – the Man, the Individualist and the Altruist. In my thesis, I adopt the approach from discursive psychology and discuss Business Administration as a study choice based on empirical material from two Swedish universities: Mälardalen University and the Stockholm School of Economics.

During 2015–2017 I have published three research papers around different descriptions of the future labor market. This research was financed by the municipalities and county councils of Västerås and Eskilstuna. I frequently speak at conferences and workshops in Sweden around this subject. At Mälardalen University I am a member of the organizational group New Management Practices (NMP). NMP is a research group that uses interpretive and process-oriented perspective on organizational phenomena. I also work in close cooperation with the Academy of Financial Management in Government (Akademin för ekonomistyrning i staten, AES) at Stockholm Business School. At Mälardalen University, I teach mainly in human resource management, management and qualitative methods.
