Havstorm is currently enrolled in the project of Cargo cult behavior in agile systems development. The project focuses on using agile methods in information systems development organizations. The research project is funded by The Research School Management and IT.
Havstorm has taught, since 2014, various courses such as systems development, systems modeling, requirement engineering, software development methods (SDMs), and qualitative research methods. She has also supervised several bachelor theses, mainly in systems development methods.
Havstorm's history at Örebro University started with a BSc in Information Systems. After that, a Master level 1 in Information Systems with a primary focus on IT Management and systems development methods. During fall 2023, she will defend her doctoral thesis, "Cargo Cult in Agile Software Development." Havstorm has practical experience as a tutor, management consultant, and agile coach in the IT industry.

Havstorm was involved in the universities' equality and gender mainstreaming work Jämställdhetskol; she focused on equality issues regarding education, research, and the workgroup in the Informatics department. Havstorm has been involved in this work since the beginning of 2018. This resulted in different network events targeting students and practitioners in the IT industry around Örebro. One such event was hosted at the Univeether with the #addher network during the fall of 2018. Over the years, Havstorm held workshops for the Informatics staff in gender mainstreaming. In the autumn of 2021, shadeld an open seminar entitled "Gender Equality in the IT Industry and Business" for all informatics students. The seminar was held available in hybrid form.
