Welcome! (top)

I am a PostDoc in the Computer Mediated Activity Group at the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University. I am primarily affiliated with the interdisciplinary research center on Participatory IT (PIT) at Aarhus University. In my research, I work on the boundary between citizen participation and mobile ubiquitous technology to study how location and “being there” may support citizens in deliberation activities such as participatory planning. In May 2013, I received a PhD degree from Aarhus University with my dissertation titled “Situating Engagement: Ubiquitous Infrastructures for In-Situ Civic Engagement”. Susanne Bødker was my thesis advisor. In the winter of 2011/12, I was a visiting scholar at the Mobile Life Centre in Stockholm, Sweden. I graduated in information systems from the University of Siegen with a Dipl.-Wirt.Inform. degree in the summer of 2009. In Siegen, I have been a student research assistant in the group of Volker Wulf and Volkmar Pipek. In my studies, I have previously been at TU Ilmenau, Germany and Tongji University, Shanghai, China.
