      Henrik Engström

      Professor of Informatics
      School of Informatics
      Room PA310L

      I am a professor at the University of Skövde and hold a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Exeter. I have conducted game-related research since 2001. My research focuses on the game development process and, in particular, its entangled, multidisciplinary nature. In a research context, I have served as project manager, producer and developer in a number of game projects (you find a selection here).

      I have released a book that presents research on game development "in the wild". It is freely available: https://gamedevresearch.se.

      I am the programme coordinator for the Game Development Master's Programme.

      FUN – Digital aids for increased joy of movement for children with neurodevelopmental disorders

      The level of physical activity is constantly declining among children and adolescents. School children today do not reach the recommended level of activity needed to maintain good physical and mental health, in the present or for the future. The FUN project aims to develop digital aids and applications that will encourage pupils with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) to increase their level of physical activity.
