Curriculum

Throughout my career, I have studied the design, implementation and use of various technologies as well as collaborative practices across several sectors and countries. This includes, the design and implementation of feedback technologies in higher education, the use of case handling systems in the public sector (an employment agency) in Denmark, the role that technology plays in promoting socio-political change in Palestine, the design and implementation of e-voting technologies in Denmark, the development and use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in Canada (non-profit clinic in Vancouver) and in Norway (Rikshospitalet, Oslo), and finally, the implementation of broadband in remote and rural areas in British Columbia and its impact on first nation culture (Canada). Throughout these projects, I have maintained a commitment to carrying out empirical fieldwork in order to develop conceptual frameworks useful for understanding collaborative practices, and for designing technologies to support these practices.
