Research

Henrik Svensson is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Cognitive Science under the supervision of Professor Tom Ziemke at the School of Humanities and Informatics at the University of Skövde (joint location with Department of Computer and Information Science, University of Linköping, Sweden).

Main research interest concerns the relation between agent-environment(sensorimotor)interactionand higher-level cognition, in particular, simulation theories of representation and cognition (e.g. Grush, 2004; Hesslow, 2002).

Teaching experience

My teaching experience consists of the following course responsibilities from the University of Skövde between 2001 and 2006. During 2001 and 2002 I was an undergraduate student. I started working as a lecturer in September 2002. A more comprehensive description of me as a teacher can be found here (in Swedish only).
