This site, peohedvall.com, is my personal website. A place to think aloud, talk about my work and reach out to people with similar interests. Currently, I'm exploring publishing videos on YouTube as a way to "work with the garage door up" and complement my more traditional scientific publishing.
Formal short description
Dr Per-Olof Hedvall, associate professor in Rehabilitation engineering and design, works as Director of CERTEC, Department of Design Sciences, Lund University. Hedvall’s research engages with questions related to accessibility, participation, and universal design. His current research aims to generate new knowledge regarding the implementation of Universal Design in Sweden. It deals with categorisations of dis/ability and gender as patterns of inequality and discrimination, people’s design strategies for preventing and counteracting discrimination, and how to create categorisations that do not lead to inequality and stigma.
