I am Professor at SFI - The Danish National Centre for Social Research. I hold a MA in Anthropology and a PhD in Sociology from the University of Copenhagen. My main areas of research are identity processes in organisations (public as well as private), processes of governance, micro sociology, the sociology of the body and work, studies of encounters between citizen and the welfare state/ employees and employers, and qualitative methods. My most recent research concerns the way in which principles of the bureaucracy, values of the market and norms of psychology influences the encounter between cititzens and professionals in welfare encounters. See link below that direct you to Manchester University Press; the book is part of their book series: Social and Political Power.
