About

I’m a Full Professor of Interaction Design at Aarhus University. I explore the use and design of digital systems from a humanistic perspective. My research focuses on the theory and practice of interaction design, participatory design,  and the role and nature of digital tools in creativity and innovation.

I am founder and co-director of the Centre for Digital Creativity at the School of Communication and Culture at Aarhus University. At the centre, we explore how digital tools and systems influence creativity and innovation. We study real-life use of digital tools in creative processes, develop and experiment with prototypes of new tools and prototypes, and develop theories to understand the role and nature of digital tools in creative processes.

I am Principal Investigator of five research projects, Managing Ideas in Creative WorkCoCreate, Creative Tools, PLACED, and Reinvent. The common denominator of the projects is that they explore the potentials of digital systems to support human creativity and innovation. I am also strongly engaged the project Experimenting, Experiencing, Reflecting, and a research affiliate at the Centre for Advanced Visualization and Interaction (CAVI) and the Participatory Information Technology Centre (PIT) at Aarhus University.

Previously I’ve been Design Research Manager for the Creativity in Blended Interaction Spaces (CIBIS)  project, and work package manager in the Centre for Digital Urban Living.

I have been the annual invited research fellow at École nationale supérieure des sciences de l’information et des bibliothèques in Lyon and research fellow at Eindhoven University of Technology.

In my work, I combine the development of theories with real-life projects in digital design, so I’m always keen on discussing potential collaborations. Get in touch via Twitter @peterdalsgaard or email dalsgaard(at)cavi.au.dk if you have an interesting project, a speaking engagement,  or a collaboration to discuss.
