Background and activities
Yngve Dahl (1976) is Associate Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science. He belongs to the research group for Information Systems and Software Engineering. Dahl holds a PhD in Computer science from NTNU. His academic interests are in the field of Human–Computer Interaction (HCI).
Dahl has have conducted HCI research in areas such as of user-centered design, usability evaluation methodology, values in design, collaborative technology, and ubiquitous computing since the early 2000s. The majority of my work consists of empirical design-oriented research with real users, with a particular focus on digital health care technology for clinical and assistive use. The results of my research have been published in leading international scientific HCI journals and conference proceedings.
