As the director of Humlab, I aim to initiate, inspire and develop the interaction between traditional humanities, culture and digitalization in research, postgraduate education and teaching. Humlab is a strong competence center at Umeå University with access to a technical environment specifically for digital humanities. Humlab has a cross-disciplinary and multidisciplinary activity and the meeting of disciplinary boundaries is central.

In my research, I focus on co-creative and participatory methods during design and evaluation of digital materials in different contexts and environments for different target groups.

My current research interests are:
