- About us
I am employed at the Alexandra Institute on a part-time basis where I am the manager for the project Denmark - a Pioneer in Telemedicine. I hold a doctoral degree in computer science and I am a Professor in pervasive computing at the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University. In addition, I am the director of the Centre for Pervasive Healthcare.
Throughout my career I have influenced on both international research, Danish IT education and on how to bridge the gap between research and industry:
I have initiated and directed several national and international research projects including the ground-breaking Scandinavian UTOPIA project on participatory design and the Palcom project on Palpable computing. Palcom ended in 2007 and was an "integrated project" under the EU 6th Framework Programme (FP6).
I have conducted most of my research in cooperation with user organizations and industry. Since 1980 I have participated in the development of digital prototypes in areas such as computer-supported cooperative work, hypermedia and pervasive computing. I am currently involved in interdisciplinary research on participatory design of applications for pervasive computing, primarily in the fields of healthcare and software architecture.
