I am an associate professor in the Technologies in Practice and Interaction Design (IxD) research groups at the IT University of Copenhagen in Denmark. My research is located at the intersection of Information Sciences, Communication Studies and Human Computer Interaction. My studies of social network structures and in-situ relational practices expose how local context can shape technology adoption and use, and how global networked information flows can, in turn, become part of the local context. I examine how people adapt and integrate an increasingly broad array of information and communication technologies into their daily lives and under conditions of strain.
