Biography

I hold a Bachelor in psychology from Copenhagen University and a Master in Information technology from The IT University of Copenhagen.

I'm a Ph.D. student at the IT University until October 2006.

Research

In my research I'm interested in understanding how information technology can support meaningful social interaction between mobile agents in existing and new social practices - to state it very briefly!

Presently I'm engaged in a project with Microsoft Business Solutions. More details will follow...

Keywords: CSCW, Interaction design, Sociology of mobility, ANT, STS.

Supervisor: Kjeld Schmidt.

Teaching and supervising

I'm a teaching assistent on the Location-based mobile applications course. I supervise projects as well.

If you are interested in supervision drop me a mail or drop by the office.
