Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Page last updated: October 1, 2017

Summery

I am a PhD Fellow holding a M.Sc. (Cand.scient) degree in computer science. My focus is within Human-Computer Interaction. Particularly I have been working with advanced user studies based on qualitative research methods. I am interested in understanding the building blocks making up complex systems and how people operate and navigate in these systems. During my studies I have had the privilege to explorer the world and have lived in Copenhagen, Denmark, Madison in Americas dairy land Wisconsin, San Diego, CA, USA, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal, and am now located in Aalborg, Denmark. This has given me the option to work with and meet several interesting and inspiring people.

Research & Project work

  • Virtual Organizations - Collaboration in Scientific Communities (2011-present)

    It is more common with larger and more distributed research groups. Particular since many disciplines are required in a development process. In this project we have developed and studied the use of an iPad app for conducting qualitative research. The main concept is that software can help a group both collecting, sharing and analyzing data.
    Advisors: Louise Barkhuus, Ph.D, & Barry Brown, Ph.D, University of California, San Diego.
  • Mobile Use of Online Social Networks (2010-2012)

    Since Online Social Networks have gained huge popularity and smartphones are becoming very common we decided to investigate how online social networks are used from mobile phones. We conducted 52 semi-structured interviews of American university students.
    Advisor: Louise Barkhuus, Ph.D. University of California, San Diego.
  • Video Integration in Social Media (2009-2010)

    In this project we studied video microblogging - the broadcasting of short video clips. We examined the use and practices surrounding this new social media phenomenon through a series of semi-structured interviews.
    Advisor: Louise Barkhuus, Ph.D. University of California, San Diego.
  • Renewable Energy Research Program (2009)

    Research course in renewable and sustainable energy. We presented a proposal for implementing access to electrical bikes at the campus of University of California, Santa Cruz.
    Advisor: Joel Kubby, Ph.D. University of California, Santa Cruz.
  • Human Factors in Computer Information Security (2008)

    Risks in information security are often the result of violations by the users. In this project we investigated information security violations in a large US based public organization.
    Advisor: Peter Hoonakker, Ph.D, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
