Anders Arweström Jansson

Anders Arweström Jansson is one of the research leaders of the HTO research group and a professor of Human-Computer Interaction. I teach human-computer interaction, more specifically about human in complex systems, cognitive work analysis and human-machine automation. My research is about man’s ability to make decisions with the help of technical systems and about man’s role in technological development. I am particularly interested in method and theory development in knowledge elicitation, decision making, design of interaction with complex systems, as well as the conditions for successful automation and automation.

Åsa Cajander

Åsa Cajander is one of the research leaders of the HTO research group. She is an Professor of Human-Computer Interaction at Uppsala University. She mainly does research in eHealth, IT and work from a sociotechnical and gender perspective. Åsa Cajander also does research in computer science education with a special interest in the development of professional competencies.

Rebecca Cort

I’m a PhD student in human-computer interaction. My main research interest is in theories and models of situated, distributed, and embodied cognition, i.e., the role of the body, mind, and environment in cognitive processes. I am specifically interested in how these theories and models can be used to better understand the role of the human in complex socio-technical systems.

Diane Golay

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 Lárusdóttir

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. 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.

Mikael Laaksoharju

I research how computerized tools should be designed to stimulate reflection and continuous development of expertise.

Thomas Lind

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

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

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

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

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).

Anders Persson

I am interested in human cognition and thinking when integrated with technology. E.g. Decision-making with the support of algorithms is becoming more common, like within recruitment and hiring. Some questions I have in relation to this: How can technology hinder thinking and reasoning surrounding decisions like these? What is a sound ethical and critical thinking process, and how can this be supported with technology? How can you support engineers creating technology that is ethically sound?

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. During 2012-2017 she coordinated the FP7 project FESTA, about women’s careers in academia.

Magdalena Stadin

Magdalena Stadin is a doctoral student at the School of Health, Jönköping University, and enrolled in the subject of health and care science. During the fall 2019 and spring 2020 Magdalena is a guest researcher in the HTO group. Magdalena’s dissertation is about work-related stress linked to information and communication technology, ie. what is usually called “digital stress” or “IT stress” in everyday speech. Magdalena’s dissertation articles are about how ICT-related stress in working life is linked to health, and how it looks in different occupational groups, socio-economic groups and in their respective sexes.

Jonas Moll

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.
