I am Associate Professor in Interaction Design at IT University of Copenhagen, affiliated with the section People and Computational Things (PACT), and the IxD Research Group. I have PhD in Informatics, with a focus on computer supported collaborative learning, but since then my focus in research and teaching has rather been interaction design, participatory design and co-design, and mobile and ubiquitous computing (in particular place-centric computing). I have around 15 years experience from research in these areas.
Lately I have focused particularly on co-design, infrastructuring and design for sharing, with resource-weak stakeholders in socially challenged non-work settings. I have done case studies in Cape Town, South Africa, where I was Adjunct Professor at Cape Peninsula University of Technology for four years. My role in the project will be to participate as researcher with a focus on co-design approaches and design for sharing, and will also be co-authoring research outcomes from the project.
