I am a PhDstudent within Information studies. In my project I investigate the role of searchengines and mobile devices in the everyday life of young people (teenagers) inSweden. This is done through an ethnographic approach and I have done fieldworkin schools. My area of focus is on the use of search engines and mobile devicesin as well as outside of school. Online searching has become an everyday andmundane task and I am interested in how the activity of searching is shaped by devicein use as well as context/location. Also, the way young people conceptualisetraces of search and the consequences thereof is explored in my project.

My profile in Lund University research portal

I am a PhD student within Information Studies. My research concerns how teenagers make use of search engines in their daily life, within and outside of school. I focus on questions such as how they search for information as well as how they reflect on issues related to searching.  My project is part of the research project Knowledge in a Digital World, www.kdw.lu.se
