Curriculum

Pernille Bjorn, Associate Professor, is Head of the research group: Technologies in Practice, which comprise 20 faculty and 6 PhD students and the IT University in Copenhagen. Pernille just returned to Copenhagen after being visiting faculty at University of California Irvine from July 2013-August 2014 as part of ISTC center for research on social computing.

Pernille’s main interest is to investigate how people collaborate within complex work arrangement aiming at developing concepts useful for the design of collaborative technologies - and her main research area is Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). She has conducted ethnographic studies of collaborative work practices in several domains such as healthcare, engineering, and software development. Currently her main interest is global software development, where she is responsible for the ethnographic studies in 5 different organisational setups with different industry partners, as part of the NexGSD research project, which is a 5 years research project on global software development funded by the Danish strategic research council.

Pernille’s research is in the cross-roads between CSCW, STS, CHI, and IS research. She has over 60 publications in peer-reviewed conference proceedings (e.g. CHI, CSCW, ECSCW) as well as in high-ranking journals such as the Journal of Computer Supported Cooperative Work, International Journal of Medical Informatics, Information System Journal, Action Research Journal, Science & Technology Studies, European Journal of Information Systems, Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems, and IEEE Transaction on Professional Communication. 

Past and current university affiliations includes associate professor, IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark (February 2009-); assistant professor IT University of Copenhagen (September 2008-January 2009); visiting faculty at University of California, Irvine, USA (July 2013-August 2014); visiting faculty at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, India (December 2011-January 2012); Post-doctoral fellow Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada (December 2006-August 2008); Roskilde University, Denmark.
