Professor in Interaction Design
I am originally from Umeå where I did my undergraduate and PhD
studies in Informatics with a focus on information systems design
and interaction design. I worked as a professor at the Department
of Informatics for many years before I moved to the School of
Informatics and Computing, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA, in
2005. During my time in Bloomington I have kept my engagement with
Umeå as a professor at the Institute of Design. I have family and
friends in Umeå and usually visit a few times per year.
What I do at UID
I am involved in the doctoral education and research at UID. I
advise a number of PhD students and I am engaged in the planning
and discussions about research initiatives.
My main work is within interaction design, philosophy and theory
of design, information technology and society, information systems
design, and philosophy of technology. Since I have been in the
field for quite some time, I have been able to publish a number of
articles and five books, including "Thoughtful Interaction Design"
(MIT Press) and "The Design Way" (MIT Press).
