I explore the development of mobile and wearable systems that seamlessly blend with and support ongoing real-world tasks (c.f. Mark Weiser's vision of calm computing) and give rise to what we refer to as an egocentric interaction paradigm.
I believe that human perception, cognition, and action capabilities are defining factors for future wearable systems that talk to us in increasingly subtle ways through our peripheral attention.

The Situative Space Model (Pederson, Janlert, & Surie, 2011) captures what a specific human agent can perceive and not perceive, reach and not reach, at any given moment in time. This model is for the emerging egocentric interaction paradigm what the virtual desktop is for the PC/WIMP (Window, Icon, Menu, Pointing device) interaction paradigm: more or less everything of interest to a specific human agent is assumed to, and supposed to, happen here.

(In order of expertise.)
From 1997 until 2021 I have taught on more than 35 different MSc and BSc-level courses mostly related to Computer Science, Interaction Design, and everything in between. Some I have developed from scratch, including:
I have also taken part in developing a few PhD courses for larger and smaller groups of PhD students.
