I’m Peter Dalsgaard, Associate Professor of Interaction Design at Aarhus University. I explore the theory and practice of interaction design from a humanistic perspective. The focal points of my work are interaction design processes, co-design, creativity and innovation, and tools and spaces that blend digital and physical aspects in meaningful ways. Currently, I’m combining these areas of research by exploring and developing digitally enhanced tools and spaces that help people create and innovate. This can sound very abstract, so think of  enhanced meeting rooms with multiple touch-screen displays in tables and walls that support a team of designers in creating concepts for new products, systems that automatically record and analyse how a group uses sticky notes to brainstorm, or augmented models of buildings and maps that help citizens take part in urban planning.

I’m Design Research Manager for the research project Creativity in Blended Interaction Spaces (CIBIS) and Program Chair for the Media Architecture Biennale. Most of my research takes place at the Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction (CAVI) and the Participatory Information Technology Centre (PIT). More official info is available on my my university profile.
