Associate professor, Deputy department chair

Job description

André Henriksen, PhD, obtained a Master's degree in Computer Science in 2003 from the Department of Computer Science, UiT the Arctic University of Norway. Between 2003 and 2016 he worked as a software engineer, project manager and head of development in Tromsø-based technology companies. Between 2012 and 2016 he simultaneously completed an experience-based master's in bussiness administration at the School of Bussiness and Economics at UiT the Arctic University of Norway. Between 2016 and 2021, he obtained a doctorate in health technology/medical informatics at the Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Community Medicine, UiT.

Since 2021, Henriksen has worked for the Department of Computer Science, UiT, as an assistant professor, and as an associate professor since 2023.

Henriksen was involved in the application to DIKU (Directorate for Internationalization and Quality in Higher Education), where NOK 6.3 million was awarded to establish an experience-based Master's in digital health services. The program started in the autumn of 2022 at UiT, Campus Mo i Rana, with a close collaboration with the health services in the Helgeland region.

He was also involved in an application to NFR in 2022 where 16 million was awarded to RESTART, a randomized controlled study, where one of the methods is the use of smart watches for collecting data on physical activity over several years from the study participants.

Henriksen currently teaches mobile health (mHealth) and clinical informatics, as part of a Master's program in Health Technology. He also teaches on a Master's program in digital health services. He has previously taught biostatistics and epidemiology.
