Based on long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Estonia, Ireland, Norway, and Turkey, his
current research has mainly assessed the socio-technical shaping of internet technologies. His research in Norway explored the expertise practices required to develop business intelligence software for the global oil and gas industry.
