Area of interests:
Design in general and spesifically Lighting Design - Urban Lighting Design

Analysis and design methods for urban lighting design. Conceptual and perceptual approach - in order to create active Light Spaces for people. I'm investigating how we can utilize light and lighting design in future city scapes. At the present I'm investigating theories in environmental psychology - to see how different ways of understanding and interpreting  "The Urban Landscape" can, and should affect our approach to light in the city. 

Teaching areas:

  • Lighting Design Tools
  • Design- and Concept Methodology
