I'm a human factors expert currently employed as postdoctoral fellow in Maritime Science with focus on working life,organization and risk management.

I have a background in Cognitive Science (MSc degree) and a PhD in Shipping and Marine Technology (Maritime Human Factors).

Research

In my research work I try to understand how safety arises in everyday operations in large-scale socio-technical systems and what can be done to design and support work environments that promote operator well-being and optimize system performance. I therefore apply concepts from Cognitive Systems Engineering, Resilience Engineering and Human-centered Design to understand the interplay between human operators, organisational settings and technology.

You can learn more about my research in a film made by the Swedish maritime competence centre Lighthouse.
