My research interest is to investigate the basic nature of collaborative work with the aim of designing collaborative technologies – thus my main research area is Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Since 2002 I have explore CSCW research agendas within different domain such as Healthcare (Emergency Departments in Vancouver, Canada; Heart Centers in Copenhagen, Denmark; Oncology departments, Herlev, Denmark); Global software development (including work conditions in India and Philippines); Start-up companies (Palestinian start-up; Blockchain start-ups); and currently I am involved in exploring new ways to include digital fabrication for collaborative technologies related to Maker communities, Makerspaces, and inclusive technologies (UCPH Makerspace, FemTech).
My research is published at different publications venues including peer-reviewed conference proceedings (e.g. CHI, CSCW, ECSCW) as well as in high-ranking journals such as the Journal of Computer Supported Cooperative Work, ACM Transaction for Computer Human Interaction, International Journal of Management, International Journal of Medical Informatics, Information System Journal, Action Research Journal, Science & Technology Studies, European Journal of Information Systems, Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems, and IEEE Transaction on Professional Communication.
