Lars Rune Christensen

Lars is Associate Professor, PhD and Head of TiP. His research is focused on the intersection between information technology, anthropology, and ethnography and is mostly published within the area of Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Current focus is on developing a systematic, conceptual foundation for understanding, designing and implementing computational artifacts in cooperative work.

In addition, his research also includes work on welfare technologies for example in the context of providing senior citizens the opportunity to stay longer in their own homes.
