Professor of Participatory Design, Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, Denmark.

Director of the University Strategic Research Initiative Designing Human Technologies. Chair of the PDC Advisory Board.

Since 1991, I have conducted participatory design action research in collaboration with practitioners—in the last decade within the healthcare domain. I focus on how IT designers can collaborate with users and their management especially when related to clarifying goals, formulating needs, and designing, realizing, and evaluating coherent visions for change.
