My research is situated at the intersection of Educational Technology and Human-computer interaction (HCI). It seeks to contribute to the study of the increasing digitalization of everyday practices and particularly to reflect on the opportunities and challenges that this process brings to epistemic and social practices as they unfold in the education sector. By putting a focus on the multiple relationships that unfold between humans and digital technologies I explore how digital technologies come to constitute novel eductaional practices but also how they disrupt them.
Prior to joining Stockholm University in 2003, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow (“forskarassistent”) researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH).
I hold a PhD in Cognitive Psychology granted by the University of Paris 8. My dissertation, “Collaborative networked activities: An instrumental approach to collaborative writing”, dealt with the problem of appropriating computer tools for collaborative writing activities and my principal advisor was Professor Pierre Rabardel, University of Paris 8. I graduated with highest honour.
I was head of the research unit Interaction Design and Learning (IDEAL) between January 2016- December 2018.
