Birgit Pauksztat is Senior Lecturer (Universitetslektor) at the Department of Business Studies at Uppsala University, Campus Gotland. Prior to this, she was an Assistant Professor at the Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki, Finland (2011-2015) and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Greenwich in London, UK (2015-17).

Birgit Pauksztat holds a PhD in Sociology from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands (2010), and an MA in Social Anthropology from the University of Cologne, Germany, and from the University of California, Irvine, USA. She has worked at the British Museum in London, UK, both as researcher in the North America collections with a focus on projects related to the North American Arctic (2000-2001, 2004-2005), and as a curator for the Zayed National Museum project (2010-2011).


Birgit Pauksztat’s research interests are in the areas of social network analysis and organizational behaviour. Her current research concerns the role of social relationships for dealing with problems at work in different organizational settings.

Another focus is on work-related and informal social interactions on cargo vessels, and on seafarers’ strategies for coping with job demands. Building on these interests, she organized (with Dr. C. Pekcan and Dr. M. Barnett) the Visby Maritime Symposium, held 10-12 October 2018, in Visby, Sweden. Bringing together industry experts and scholars, the Visby Maritime Symposium provides a forum for state-of-the-art research from across the social sciences and for discussions about future research to meet the challenges facing merchant shipping in a socially responsible way.
