Research

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

Main research interest is centered around the interaction between agents and other agents or artefacts and the impact of contextual factors. I'm also interested in the relation between agent-environment (sensorimotor) interaction and higher-level cognition, in particular, simulation theories of representation and cognition (e.g. Grush, 2004; Hesslow, 2002).
