Pontus Wallgren

Universitetslektor at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Design and Human Factors

Pontus’s research concerns methods for user requirements elicitation and communication. In particular he is interested in how users can be enabled to participate in product development using methods such as Co-Design. Furthermore he is interested in user adoption of new technology. Application areas of Pontus’s research has been largely in transportation (public transport, private cars, automated driving, bicycles, electromobility), but also medical technology, food, mobile technology, etc.
