Jens Alvén Sjöbergs' (former Sjöberg) research is within public organizations and strategic communication. His research focuses on social media, safety, trust, participatory processes, and Critical Making. The concept of Critical Making focuses on (in short) the gap between technology and society, and here, communication and interaction are crucial factors in the work process/es.

Jens' dissertation examines the Swedish Police's social media communication for creating safety. The research project involves employees within the police authority and the public. The dissertation aims to increase knowledge and understanding surrounding Swedish Police social (partly digital) communications that focus on creating safety (sense of safety). The Agenda 2030 is also included as an umbrella in the research project.

Moreover, Jens graduated from the Master's program in Strategic Media Development at Malmö University in 2016. He has always been interested in media communication and learning. Furthermore, Jens has many years of experience as a university lecturer from Malmö University and Blekinge Institute of Technology in media production, media technology, and visual communication. He has also worked with several different TV productions from Swedish public service television company (SVT) Malmö and media productions in graphic design and visual communication for various companies and organizations in southern Sweden.
