Current fellows

Kristiina Herold (Finland)
Sep 2016 - Aug 2018

Postdoctoral researcher
Aalto University

Kristiina’s research focuses on social interactions in organizations. In her primary line of research, she examines how organizational secrecy impacts individuals, particularly focusing on the interplay of the brain’s "liking" and "wanting" systems. Kristiina is interested in understanding how individuals react to secrecy, and investigates the effect’s boundary conditions through trust, power and emotions. Kristiina collaborates with Professor Baba Shiv at the Graduate School of Business.

Another project Kristiina is working on concerns secrecy and strategy. By examining the effects of transparency and opacity, the research aims to identify unused opportunities and underline possible bottlenecks in organizational performance. Kristiina collaborates on this project with Professor Henri Schildt from Aalto University and Professor Karl Wennberg from Linköping University.

Sergiy Protsiv (Sweden)
Sep 2015 - Aug 2017

PhD in Business Administration
Stockholm School of Economics

Sergiy Protsiv is a SCANCOR postdoctoral fellow at the Graduate School of Education. He explores the spatial dynamics of economic activity and the interplay between geography and networks in collaboration with Professor Woody Powell. 

The key topics for Sergiy’s analysis are the factors affecting the attractiveness of places for firms and people, how is this attractiveness related to productivity and innovation, and the related implications for policy. The analysis relies on economy-spanning databases of firm- and establishment-level information combined with precise geographical location and provides methodological contributions for analysis of such spatial microdata.

Mathias Wullum Nielsen (Denmark)
Sep 2015 - Sep 2017

PhD Fellow

Mathias Wullum Nielsen is a postdoctoral fellow in Gendered Innovations at the Department of History. His research focuses on how gender-related changes in science demographics and shifts in knowledge production are connected. More specifically, he is interested in teasing out the potential links between women’s increasing participation in academic medicine and historical developments in the topics addressed and knowledge produced in biomedical science.

 Mathias collaborates with Professor Londa Schiebinger. In addition to his own project, he is involved in the ongoing efforts of the Gendered Innovations project in developing practical methods of sex and gender analysis stimulating gender responsible research in a wide range of science and technology fields.
