Research topic

The PhD project is closely interacting with the other two organisations that are part of Gemini Centre on IoT: SINTEF Oslo and NTNU's Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering.

The goal of the PhD is to study privacy concepts in IoT (Internet of Things) from the point of view of the user. Various graphical and intuitive representations of privacy concepts are developed and tested in use cases taken from various pilots developed in projects and research related to Gemini Centre as: air quality monitoring, elderly home care systems, care-as-a-sensor, or smart facility management systems. The PhD develops methods of conveying complicated concepts related to privacy in an intuitive and understandable manner, for common users of the IoT systems. The work builds on and complements the technical developments of the research in the Gemini Centre on IoT. These are related to a certification process for privacy and technical aspects underlying the various privacy concepts that we study. The extraction of the privacy concepts is based on legislation like GDPR (EU’s General Data Protection Regulation) or Privacy-by-Design guidelines.


I have an interdisciplinary background with university education in Human-Computer Interaction, IT, multimedia design, pedagogical studies and human studies. I also have long work experience from design and IT industry.
