Deltagare Grand Prix 2019

Vem blir Skövdes bästa forskningspresentatör 2019? Forskar Grand Prix är Sveriges största tävling i presentationsteknik för forskare. De tävlande ska presentera sin forskning på ett så enkelt, inspirerande och pedagogiskt sätt som möjligt – på fyra minuter! Tävlingen pågår på flertalet orter runt om i Sverige under vetenskapsfestivalen ForskarFredag. En jury tillsammans med publiken utser sedan en vinnare som går vidare till finalen i Stockholm. Möt deltagarna på ForskarFredag Grand Prix i Skövde!

Översätta skiljetecken

Namn: Karin Axelsson
Titel: Lektor i engelska, fil.dr.

Skiljetecken som frågetecken och utropstecken är internationella symboler men min forskning visar att många skiljetecken används i mycket olika utsträckning i svenska och engelska. Skiljetecken tas bort och läggs till vid översättning mellan språken men översatta texter följer ändå inte normerna i det språk man översatt till.

Improving workers life with technology

Namn: Aitor Iriondo Pascual
Titel: Doktorand vid Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

The research group to which Aitor Pascual belong is the user center product design, where they study the needs of a product taking into account the diversity of people when designing products. One of the areas of study, in which Aitor´s research is included, is the digital modeling of humans, in which they strive to develop digital humans that behave like real humans. The research group also use anthropometry to represent diversities, from different bodies to different ages. All this is applied in the IPS IMMA software, which they continually develop together with the Fraunhofer-Chalmer Centre. This software is used by companies like Scania when evaluating the ergonomics of their workers, in this way the methodologies created by us have an impact on the industry. Aitor´s research is within this context, where he develop methodologies to implement in IPS IMMA.

“In my case, I develop optimization methodologies and their objective is to improve both the ergonomics of the workers and the productivity of the industry. To do this, I automate several factors, such as the design of work stations or the tasks of the workers and I verify both that the worker suffers less and that the station is productive. In this way I can get more productive factories and reduce the number of injuries related to physical work.” Aitor says.

Personalized Medicine
- tailoring disease treatments using networks

Namn: Tejaswi Badam
Titel: Doktorand vid Institutionen för biovetenskap

Bad reactions to drugs account for 3% of deaths in Sweden. Besides genetic
factors, there are other factors like sex, age, diet, lifestyle, and environment that impact a patient’s response to a drug. Thus, there is a need of developing a personalized medicine approach to improve the safety and efficacy of drugs.
Recent developments in genomic medicine suggest taking into account genomic knowledge about the individual patient. This knowledge can be represented as network of interconnected genes that tend to form tightly connected “gene communities”. These structures are referred to as modules and are often dysfunctional in various diseases.

"My research is about identifying such modules of interconnection and
communication within the genome of the patients and make a prediction of
developing drug reactions before the implementation of the drug therapy itself.
A virtual model for tailoring drugs and their response on a personalized level is the ultimate research aim." says Tejaswi.

IT's all about you

Namn: Simon Butler
Titel: Post-Doctor

Society is moving from paper to digital systems for recording information. A major challenge is to ensure information, including documents, can still be read for as long as required - decades for government documents, legal agreements, and design documents for example. In practice, documents created today will have a longer lifespan than the software used to create them. Consequently, for a document to be read in the future, the standard specifying the document file format will need to be available, and software engineers will need to be able to recreate working software from the standard. My research investigates how software developers, working for different companies and organisations, collaborate together in open source software projects to create and maintain software that implements standards.

The aim of the research is to understand the types of problems software developers face today when implementing standards and how they find solutions to those problems. The research findings can be used to find better ways for software developers to collaborate, and to improve the ways that standards for documents and data are created and implemented.

Dessa #b#P&h! lösenord!

Namn: Marcus Nohlberg
Titel: Lektor i datavetenskap

Marcus forskar inom informationssäkerhet, huvudsakligen fokuserat på mänskliga aspekter. Under denna presentation kommer Marcus berätta om den världsledande forskning som sker på Högskolan i Skövde rörande lösenord, och framförallt kommer Marcus svara på vad som är ett bra lösenord, och ge dig praktiska råd som höjer din säkerhet - på riktigt.
