My research areas

Participation, Impairment, Disability, Digital Divides, Design and Accessibility. Check out my thesisDesign for Participation and Inclusion will Follow: Disabled People and the Digital Society. Take a look at our research onhow people with impairments use the internet and compare it with the whole population.  A focus for my research is participatory methods, some presented in my licentiate thesis. I am a member of the action research communityBegripsam. We want to change the society by more inclusive and universal design.

I am also working withhomeless people, exploring how they can benefit from using smart technology. The homeless people are ready to use smart technology as means to be more included in society - social services are not. This work started in Stockholm and has now moved to Örebro and a collaboration with Örebro Stadsmission.
