Professor of Participatory Design, Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, Denmark. 

Chair of the PDC Advisory Board

Since 1991, I have conducted participatory design action research in collaboration with practitioners—in the last decade within the healthcare domain. I focus on how IT designers can collaborate with users and their management especially when related to clarifying goals, formulating needs, and designing, realizing, and evaluating coherent visions for change.
