People I work with

If only there was a good photo of all the marvelous people I get to work with! Here’s the last attempt for a group picture of (most of) the Systems Design Studio team … little did we know covid19 would shut down this room for a long time.

As Director of the Digital Curation Institute, I created the DCI Fellowship program in 2016 and have had the pleasure of working with an array of incredible Fellows since then –

Industry partners

I have recently collaborating with two industry partners: Sustainalytics, the leading independent global provider of ESG and corporate governance research and ratings to investors. (NSERC Engage project); and S4N, an innovative Colombia-based software company with an amazing team!

Previously, I collaborated in European Framework projects with SMEs such as KEEP Solutions and industrial research groups at Microsoft Research Cambridge and the Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental Software Engineering, and I supervised the team of students who founded – one of the groundbreaking and most highly valued startups in the mobile diabetes app universe.

I have also long collaborated with national archives in Europe and national as well as academic libraries in Europe and North America, and with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in the BenchmarkDP project.

Academic Collaborators

As co-founder of the Karlskrona Manifesto for Sustainability Design, I am blessed with a fabulous group of collaborators in Europe and North America.

In addition, I am always looking out for synergies, especially across disciplines (see our workshop at PDC 2020 for an example). Some recent collaborators: Dr. Fabian Fagerholm, Aalto University, Finland, Prof. Rahul Mohanani, IIIT Delhi, India, Prof. Alexander Chatzigeorgiou, University of Macedonia, Greece.
