I am a PostDoc in Computer Science at the AASS Research Center, School of Science and Technology, Örebro University, Sweden. I received my Ph.D. in Information Technology in Örebro in 2013. The thesis focused on how to measure the quality of interaction in communication mediated by mobile robotic telepresence systems. I also received my M.Sc. in Media Technology and Engineering from Linköping University, Sweden in 2005. My research interests span human computer interaction (HCI), human machine interaction (HMI) and human robot interaction (HRI). More specifically, I am interested in:
- human-robot interaction and social robotic telepresence
- Smart homes
- How ICT can be developed to support independent living for an ageing population.
You can find more information about my research and my publications in my Google Scholar Profile. I am a Post-doc researcher at AASS Research Center, (Örebro University). My research interests span HCI, HMI and HRI. My dissertation focused on measuring the quality of interaction in mobile robotic telepresence (MRP) systems when deployed in an elderly context. I also find it important to study how and when smart home technology affects the perceived security and safety.
