Dr Ringsbergs research interests are within the field of supply chain management, with a focus on information and communication technology (ICT) and sustainability. In recent studies, he has focused efficiency and how adoption of ICT can enhance security and sustainability linked to mitigation of the impact of disruptive events. He currently studies traceability of products within distribution through global networks, and sustainable transportation linked to the adoption of High Capacity Transport vehicles, as well as on the capillary road network. His research has been published in Supply chain management: an international journal, British food journal, International Journal of Logistics Management and The International Journal of Higher Education Research. Dr Ringsberg’s research is characterized by a tripple helix approach (conducted in cooperation between the industry, academy and the society), and the qualitative as well as quantitative studies. He received her Ph.D. in Engineering from Lund University of Technology and his MSc. Environmental Engineering from Luleå University of Technology. He teaches and develops undergraduate courses (Master and Bachelor level) in ICT, SCM, and sustainable logistics.
