My name is Audun Karlsrud Larsen and I am 25 years old. I am currently working on my master thesis in the field of informatics: Design, use and interaction. I have previously finished a bachelor degree within the same field. During my studies I have gained interest in the relationships within human computer interaction, and I am motivated by the opportunity to create technological solutions that can make a difference.
In my thesis I will explore the possibilities mobile applications and technology gives to enhance the life situation for young patients struggling with eating disorders. I plan to work with participatory design, as this gives me the tools to work closely with the patients and explore needs, thoughts and solutions technology can provide. My goal is to design a new mobile solution based on their needs. Throughout my thesis I will also explore how the concepts of service design can further enhance the use and development of mobile technology.
