HC received his PhD in business administration from Lund University in 1996 with specializations in management accounting and organization theory. He also has over 20 years of experience in interdisciplinary research environments during which he has conducted research about railroad planning, risk in public transportation, and wind power siting. This general interest in infrastructures has guided him to focus on the governance, planning, and organizing of waste management; wasting behaviors and practices; waste ethics; waste narratives and discourses; and social-scientific theories of waste. He has published his research about waste in waste journals, as well as journals within the fields of accounting, cultural geography, management, organization theory, and social anthropology. For him, opening bins is among the best things one can do to study societies.
