Research

Henrik Svensson is currently part of the Horizon 2020 Dreams4Cars research project 

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).
