Cecilia Berlin

Docent at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Production Systems

Associate Professor at CHALMERS University of Technology, Dept. of Product and Production Development, Div. of Production Systems Cecilia Berlin is Associate Professor at the division of Production Systems, where her research focuses on Production Ergonomics, humans in production and Social Sustainability. This encompasses ergonomics, globalization challenges, economic effects of ergonomics, and improving human well-being and system performance in future workplaces. The aim is to create guidelines for designing attractive and socially sustainable future workplaces to be the greatest possible enablers for human capacity and talent. Cecilia teaches in various human factors- related courses at Chalmers and frequently lectures at other universities in Sweden. Cecilia has had numerous engagements as a public speaker on the subject of Social Sustainability in future industrial workplaces.
