Steven Mallam is a Post-Doctoral Fellow at University College of Southeast Norway, Faculty of Technology and Maritime Sciences. Steven received his PhD in Maritime Human Factors from Chalmers University of Technology, with his research focusing on the application of human-centered design and participatory approaches in naval architecture and engineering processes.
Steven’s primary research interests involve the analysis and optimization of end-users and their work processes within complex socio-technical systems. Particularly, he is interested in utilizing advanced technologies to enhance knowledge mobilization and pedagogics of individuals and teams. Steven has experience performing Human Factors and Ergonomics research in interdisciplinary projects within a variety of industries, including maritime transport, commercial fishing, offshore oil and gas, and aviation.
