|My Master's Thesis on Computer Supported Cooperative Work was done at the Technical University of Denmark, Center for Tele-Information with advisor Kjeld Schmidt. I continued this work during Ph.D. studies at the ICT program - former CORPS (Computing, Organizations, Policy, and Society) at the School of Information and Computer Science at University of California, Irvine.
Basically I'm interested in getting closer to a useful understanding of cooperative work and the role of (especially information-) technology in relation to this. My research is based on field studies of various types of technology used in cooperative settings.
I have studied work in:
* a life-insurance company focussing on workflow systems and awareness issues
* a pharmaceutical company focussing on organizational use of large document repositories, in particular the role of classification in the common information spaces
* an event production company focussing on mobility and on the ways in which the mobility influences the available methods of studying technology use.
A particularly fascinating and worthwhile area is what the notion of embodiment can bring to our understanding of technology use and design.
