Introduction
I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Management, Society and Communication at Copenhagen Business School and visiting researcher at Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets at Stockholm School of Economics. My research is at the intersection between sustainable consumer behaviour and innovation, where I currently study the potential role of the “crowd” in promoting sustainability. Hopefully to uncover what role the consumer could have in enabling and financing sustainable innovation. I primarily work quantitatively and if possible employing lab and field experiments.

The agri-food system features prominently in discussions about sustainable development because of its broad economic, social, and environmental impacts.

Based on data from eight crowdfunding platforms that have financed projects with...
Article
Optimists contend that crowdfunding, in which project backers use online campaigns to assemble numerous small donations, can democratize access to finance, but there are legitimate concerns that this funding approach remains discriminatory. Drawing on recent readings emphasizing the geographic components of Bourdieu’s field theory, we argue the rel...
Article
Crowdfunding presents many opportunities for moving towards a sustainable society, with specific interest for sustainable entrepreneurs and innovators. In order to examine the potential role of crowdfunding in this context, we position this Special Issue (SI) within the larger stream of sustainability transitions literature, and in particular in re...

Crowdfunding has become a rapidly growing source of alternative financing for a wide range of products and service ideas. The crowdfunding process itself necessitates the successful interaction between a number of actors including the central organizing platform, a number of content providing campaigns, and a large diverse group of funders. By util...
Article
Sustainable innovation is typically viewed through the lens of the producer innovator, whereas end-users (or consumers) are perceived to play only a peripheral role in the development of sustainable products and services. A growing literature stream, however, sharply departs from this view by suggesting that end-users often play a critical role wit...
