Rikke has a deep interest in how technology affects and influences the human experience.

In her current research, Rikke looks at how individuals maneuver and negotiate organizations’ requests for data sharing in digital spheres and some of the emergent practices that transpire in response to this data-driven environment.


Rikke has published her work in the Frontiers in Psychology, The European Business Review,  Harvard Business Publishing, Journal of Marketing Education and European Advances in Consumer Research.
