Sandra graduated from Chalmers University of Technology in May 2011 with a M.Sc. degree in Automation and Mechatronics Engineering. Having a major in Information Technology and a B.Sc in Psychology, she started working as a Ph.D. student at the department of Product and Production Development in September 2011. The research focus regards the interaction between human and automation mainly in a final assembly context. Her licentiate thesis, ”What is Perceived as Complex in Final Assembly – To Define, Measure and Manage Production Complexity”, was presented in September 2013. The thesis includes the developed method Complexity Index, a survey used to give an index for how complex a station is (based on the following aspects: product variants, work content, layout, tools and support tools, work instructions and general view of the station). The aim of her research is to characterize and measure Human-Automation Interaction to better predict system performance, maintain product quality and support human operators (improve efficiency, effectiveness and satisfaction). Her research combines quantitative and qualitative research, and also includes the following topics: Levels of Automation, arousal and empowerment.
