Charlott Sellberg
Ph.D. Student
Department of Applied IT
University of Gothenburg
Gothenburg
Sweden

PhD Charlott Sellberg has a multidisciplinary background in Cognitive Science, Human-Computer Interaction and Education. Her continuing research interests is on how technology enter into work and learning practices, adopting situated, distributed and embodied approaches to cognition and learning. Methodologically, her research is based on ethnographic fieldwork as well as detailed video analysis of human-technology interactions in different kinds of work and learning settings. Her overall aim is to produce results that move beyond abstract conceptions of internal cognitive processes and tacit knowledge towards analyses of how the participants themselves organize their activities in interaction with their environment. In this way, Charlott hopes to provide empirically grounded knowledge regarding the use of technology in various settings that have the potential to develop our understanding of work and learning with technologies further.
