Laura Lynggaard Nielsen

Senior Anthropologist / People, Technology and Business Lab

Laura Lynggaard Nielsen

As an anthropologist, Laura is an important contributor to innovation processes where she analyses the relationship between people, technology and business.

Her work spans several domains, problem areas and project types but always has an application-oriented approach to business and technology development. Laura is an expert in posing the right questions to understand the users, see problems from a new perspective or facilitate collaboration among people from diverse disciplines.

Laura has many years’ experience of running and leading workshops to identify values and challenges in organisations. She also facilitates processes where different project partners work together to identify problem areas and contribute to innovative solutions.

An important part of her work is to transform academic knowledge into social utility. She therefore contributes to scientific publications, gives talks and organises knowledge dissemination events.

Laura has an MA in anthropology from Aarhus University where she specialised in design anthropology and innovation processes. As part of her studies, she conducted fieldwork in Silicon Valley.
