Christine Ipsen is Professor in Technology Implementationat DTU Engineering Technology My key research interests are organizational behavior, occupational health, and management. In my work, I aim at developing new knowledge and reframe the way we think about management of work. As industry and research has advanced knowledge to develop sustainable solutions while ensuring economic growth, less attention has been paid to sustainable work and how to ensure well-being while securing performance. With new ways of working including hybrid-remote work, there is a need for new knowledge about how to combine different fields to develop new knowledge about how managers, organisations and stakeholders can ensure sustainable work that attends to both well-being and performance in tandem.  Over the years I have specialized in interventions in knowledge work to ensure productivity and well-being in tandem and have written a large number of publications about participatory interventions in knowledge work. I have co-developed the Fish-Bone method, a participatory tool to explore what creates enthusiam and strain at a workplace and an Evaluation tool, to continuously evaluate the progress of an intervention and implementation of changes.    Christine Ipsen is: - Visiting Senior Fellow at Nottingham Trent University, UK. - Co-editor of the International Journal of Workplace Health Management - Member of the Editiorial Board of Safety Science. - Affiliated with University of Massachusetts- Lowell, US and the Center for Promotion of Health in New England Workplacees (CPH-NEW). - Vice-chair of the Scandinavian Academy of Industrial Engineering and Management - www.scaiem.org. - From 2012 -2016 she was head of the PhD school of DTU MAN.
