Diane Golay is a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University, Sweden. Her research focuses on the impact of digitalization on the work environment in healthcare, in particular in regard with professions dominated by women.
Marta Kristín Lárusdóttir is Associate Professor in School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University and chair of the CRESS research center there. Marta has been involved in research projects both nationally and internationally, where her contribution has been on the integration of human centred design in agile software development. The most recent research projects are the COST funded network Twintide, the KIA project at Uppsala University and the Agile UCD project at Uppsala University and KTH in Sweden. Marta has written numerous scientific paper, organised workshops and been involved in organizing conferences in the field of Human-computer interaction for over 15 years. In the years 1996 – 2001, Marta worked as a project manager in the software industry in Iceland.
Thomas Lind has a PhD in Computer Science with a specialisation towards Human-Computer Interaction and is currently a Postdoc at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Sweden. Thomas does research on organisational change processes involving IT in primarily large government organisations. His focus is on the impact of these processes on the usability of new or altered IT, as well as the impact on the work environment of its users.
Ida Löscher (Bodin) has a Master of Science in Engineering degree in Product Realization, and a Master in Ergonomics and Human-Technology-Organisation, both from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden. She is now a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University, where she belongs to two research groups; Technologies in Human Reasoning (TiHR) and HTO. Her research is focused on how we can understand work in complex systems, and she has so far applied the Cognitive Work Analysis framework in the long haul truck and healthcare domain.
Gunilla Myreteg is Assistant Professor in accounting at Uppsala University. Her research interest is the role of information technologies in organizations, and in situations where different actors perform a variety of work tasks. These situations occur in the setting of an accounting and management control system. The ideas and views held by actors may be more or less in accordance to one another, but might sometimes be conflicting. Her research aims to develop an understanding regarding the mutual impact between IT and actors / actor groups from a processual and social constructivist perspective. Empirically, she is studying eHealth and patient portals in health care but also ERP systems in the manufacturing industry.
Gerolf Nauwerck is a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University. He has been working as an IT-strategist and business analyst but is now focusing on ICT related change management and health. In particular he is studying what in Sweden is called “the digital work environment”.
Lars Oestreicher is a researcher in Human-Computer Interaction/Disability research at Uppsala University. He has a background in Computer Science, with Psychology, Linguistics and Social Science as specialisation. He has been involved the research around social aspect of service robotics at NADA, Royal Institute of Technology. His Ph. D. thesis concerned task analysis for service robots, with application to disabilities. In later years he has oriented his research towards Non-excluding design and support for disabilities.
Currently he is involved in the “Mumin” project, in collaboration with Årsta Special School in Uppsala. The project aims at providing children with severe multi-impairments with the tools for music creation. The project web site is currently only in Swedish (muminprojektet.wordpress.com).
Minna Salminen Karlsson
Minna Salminen-Karlsson is Associate professor at the Centre of Gender Research at Uppsala University. She has done research on technology-gender-education-organization, in particular gender in engineering education and in high-tech working environments, both in industry and in the academy. However, her research covers a wide range of issues, from technical education at different levels to gender in a number of organizational contexts. Presently, in addition to the DISA project, she is engaged in research projects Staging the successful student, about masculinities in prestigious higher education programmes; Nordwit, about women’s technology driven careers inside and outside of the academy; and Valuing work of equal worth, about gender salary mappings in Swedish municipalities. During 2012-2017 she coordinated the FP7 project FESTA, about women’s careers in academia.

Christiane is a PhD student in Human-Computer Interaction at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm (Sweden) and TH Köln University of Applied Sciences, Gummersbach (Germany). In her PhD, Christiane is investigating the opportunities and challenges of patients accessing their electronic health records, especially in relation to patient participation and the doctor-patient relationship. Her work is mainly carried out within the scope of the DOME consortium.
Jonas Moll is a postdoc researcher in Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University. Jonas focuses on eHealth in his research and has a special interest in how patients’ access to their electronic health records affects the patients themselves as well as medical personnel. A special emphasis is on how the communication between patients and physicians as well as in between physicians has changed due to the implementation of patient accessible electronic health records. His work is mainly carried out within the scope of the DOME consortium.
