Alexandra Weilenmann investigates the use of mobile communication and information technologies. The aim is to reveal how these technologies are brought into play as part of everyday activities, something that has involved exploring different methods for performing ethnographic work, attempting to get close to the phenomenon. Previous fieldwork includes mobile technology use among hunters, journalists, airport personnel, professional drivers, museum visitors, teenagers and the elderly.
Weilenmann holds a PhD in informatics, and is Associate Professor in Applied Information Technology. She is employed at the Department of Applied Information Technology, University of Gothenburg.
