Within industrial work settings, studying how work is distributed between people and technology, how it is practically achieved, and how systems should be designed to support work are my focus of interest. With the vision for Industry 4.0 and cobots, working conditions in the industrial settings are starting to change. I am convinced that we are in a transitioning phase from automation to actual collaboration with robots in manufacturing and that this will open up a new problem space for investigations, in which research on Human-Robot Collaboration will be crucial. My research focusses on social practice and workplace studies to explore the socio-technical environment of Industry 4.0 involving cobots on an individual, team, and organizational level.
