Personal profile

Current position

Assistant Professor, Human-Centered Data Science, Digital Design, IT University of Copenhagen

Research areas

I’m a Danish computer scientist, with research interests in human-computer interaction, psychology, and data science. I design, conduct, and analyze computerized experiments to study human behavior; and conversely, I employ cognitive and social psychological theory to develop human-centered computing. I’m studying, and ultimately aiming at improving, how to conduct empirical research in computer science. I utilize a range of technologies such as extended reality, mobile interfaces, and crowdsourcing to evaluate, understand, and improve interactions between humans and computers. I am a fan of open science and reproducibility.
