University of Gothenburg
Assistant Professor
Gothenburg, Sweden
I am Assistant Professor in the Division of Learning, Communication and IT, in the Department of Applied Information Technology, University of Gothenburg
My current research focuses on the use of technology to enhance new forms of scientific activities involving amateurs, such as, for example, hacker culture and citizen science. Currently, I am a member of a research group working on a four-year project called "Taking science to the crowd: Researchers, programmers, and volunteer contributions transforming science online."
Within this project, I place my current research on citizen science at the intersection of citizen science and information technologies. I have a specific interest on the influence of gamification on what citizens do in this type of activity.
I am Vice-Chair of the COST Action Citizen Science to promote creativity, scientific literacy, and innovation throughout Europe , http://www.cost.eu/COST_Actions/ca/CA15212?parties
