Robert obtained his Master’s degree from Lund University. His final stage thesis was on public procurement law, a topic which still is salient in his doctoral studies and which focuses on contract design and public procurement law. The work involves a wide array of construction projects spanning from mega-projects to refurbishing projects. Robert’s teaching interests are in public procurement, construction law and property law. Before beginning his doctoral studies, Robert worked as a corporate legal counsel specialising in public procurement and IT/telecommunications.
Robert is, or has been, a collaborator in several EU-level projects, including INTERREG IV and COST actions. In addition, he is on the Board of the CSR Legal Research Network, is a member of the PLAN network and a member of the SCI-Network. Robert is also involved in the local community investigating aspects of social public procurement.
Robert has published papers on public procurement and construction management, and has been invited to publish chapters in a number of anthologies including The Applied Law and Economics of Public Procurement and Public Procurement for Innovation – International Perspectives.
Robert prefers to spend his spare time in places he has not visited previously, with friends or with an interesting book on a random topic.
