Currently my research projects make a deep dive into the realms of services, especially concerning the expressive powers of design in service development, service innovation, and policy making.

 The idea that design objects and design materials can be both dynamic, active and that the design is co-created "in use", drive my research of relevant theoretical grounding for design, inspire my design research on materials, and challenges the way we understand how to prototype and do stakeholder involvement.

Design as part of transformation processes, where systemic perspectives, policy and institutions play a central role, where ideas about welfare and the individual come into conflict, are part of the changing practice of design. This change is partly driven by design for service.

The road to these projects has led through a critical stance towards the institutionalized arena of user-centered design, through projects on the role of learning for usability, and the importance of interaction design and usability in business development and IT-procurement processes, over a dedication in developing and maintaining high quality design courses for a wide range of programmes at the university.
