    Research interests

    The research area is “Health technology”, where he research how to use technologies to improve health, mainly focusing on diabetes type 1 and type 2. He is currently involved in 12 eHealth, mHealth (mobile health), mDiabetes (mobile diabetes) and social media projects, and have previously been engaged in 29 other eHealth/mHealth projects. He has been involved in applying for funding and project management for 31 of these. He is co-manager of the Medical Health Technology group at the Department of Computer Science at UiT. He is the group leader of the interdisciplinary and inter-institutional team where diabetes, social media and mHealth is focused, and sharing of patient-gathered health data (PGHD) through the mobile phone app “Diabetes Diary” and sensors are used. This involves research on sensor-, smartphone- and smartwatch-based self-help applications and systems for enabling health care systems and personnel to relate to the PGHD. It includes research around the technologies, user needs, user-perception, and medical outcomes of mobile ways of doing disease management. He is currently the main supervisor of two PhD candidates and co-supervise three other PhD candidates and two master student and have supervised >50 students on the master/PhD level since 2001. His research projects have generated knowledge about mHealth and eHealth generally, and especially about using mobile self-help tools, such as research app, the Diabetes Diary (downloaded by more than 10.000 users), medical sensors and how to integrate data with health care systems and improvement of decision support systems.
