Curriculum Vitae

Page updated: July 18, 2018

Summery

I am a PhD Fellow holding a M.Sc. (Cand.scient) degree in computer science with a specialization in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). I have a multidisciplinary background covering computer science, psychology, cognitive science, philosophy, and information systems. Since 2012 I have been a teaching and research assistant at Aalborg University (AAU) while also pursuing a Ph.D. degree in HCI. Specifically, I have engaged with the concepts of usability engineering, user experience (UX), and interaction design. At the moment, I am affiliated with the Human-Centered Computing research unit at AAU. During my studies, I have had the privilege to travel and have lived in Copenhagen, Denmark, Madison in America's Dairyland Wisconsin, sunny San Diego, CA, USA, Funchal on the island of Madeira, Portugal, and am currently 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.
