I work as a senior lecturer (Ph.D in Informatics) at the Department of Applied IT, University of Gothenburg , Sweden.

From 2003 to 2018, my research included empirical studies with extensive field work focusing on the design of information technology-use for crisis and emergency response work. The last few years has been characterised by less field studies in the crisis response domain and an increasing interest of the design of digital technologies for endurance athletic contexts.


My research is design-driven and oriented on exploring new ways of designing and embedding information technology into social settings and work practices by using real-world prototypes. Sometimes are these efforts successful and therefore transformed into commercial products.

I enjoy teaching and supervising at master’s level-programs:

  • Digital Leadership, masters program(2017 – 2019)
    Course: Digital Infrastructures (code: TIA016)
  • Master in Communication (between 2011-2018, 2020)
    Course: Communication Technology (code: TIA066)
  • Interaction design & technologies, Masters program (2014-2016)
    Course: Human Centered Design (code: TDA486)
  • IT-Management, masters program (2007-2013)
    Course: IT-infrastructure (code: TIA008)

  1. I am M B H Parvez from Bangladesh. I have just completed my Master’s in MIS. I am very much interested to built my carrier in such area.

    How can I do this???

    1. I think the best thing you can do is to contact local governmental agencies or NGOs working in the area of emergency and crisis response and start work for them in your spare time. Contact for example the Red Cross, WHO or Oxfam in the region you live and see how you could work with them.
