I am a professor in informatics in the Department of Informatics, Umeå University, Sweden. Before joining the Department I have had research and teaching positions at the Institute of Psychology at Russian Academy of Education, Moscow University, and University of California in San Diego. I have a Master’s and a Ph. D. in psychology, both from Moscow University, Russia. My research interests include design of integrated digital work environments, technology-enhanced learning, and activity theory as a framework for interaction design. I co-authored Acting with Technology: Activity Theory and Interaction Design (MIT Press, 2006) and co-edited Beyond the Desktop Metaphor: Designing Integrated Digital Work Environments (MIT Press, 2007).
