School of Informatics
I am working as an Associate Professor (biträdande professor) of Informatics at the University of Skövde. I got a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Exeter 2002. I have conducted game-related research since 2001. My research interest is focused on the game development process with a particular focus on its entangled, multidisciplinary nature. As part of the research, I have had the role as project leader, producer and developer in a number of game projects (you find a selection here).
