Personal profile

Research

My research mainly concerns the development of methods supporting societal efforts to make the build environment accessible for all, regardless of functional capacity. An accessible environment promotes activity and participation and is thereby also important for the population health. Among other things I have been involved in a large EU funded project concerning social innovations (InnovAge, 2013-2015). This project aimed at developing new practical solutions that enable older people to take on a more active and influential role in how current and future housings are built, renovated and adapted to support a healthy ageing.

Current projects include the development of a new assessment tool for the accessibility of entrances in the public environment.
