Personal profile

Research profile

As a Ph.D. candidate at Aalborg University, I work with the Industry 4.0 agenda in collaboration with the Manufacturing Academy of Denmark as well as with Danish and multinational industrial partners. My research efforts concern the management of the industrial digital transformation and, more specifically, the integration of IoT for supporting operational performance improvement. The aim of my work is to answer the need for linking transformation practices and technology implementation to contextual needs.

I have been dealing with digital maturity, developing a context-specific assessment approach for supporting organizations in structuring their own digital transformation process, and with IoT solution design and integration, linking technology implementation with context-specific application needs, for improving operational performance.

My goal is to provide manufacturing companies with a support for strategically approach the digital transformation in order to translate the enabled information transparency into actual value.
