Title: Accessibility expert with a special focus on assistive technology

My role at Funka

I work mainly with accessibility and usability audits for digital interfaces and documents. In addition, I also test accessibility using different types of assistive technology.

The driving force of the job

I am driven by the idea of everyone's inclusion in society, and that more people, with the help of assistive technology, will be able to use technology as it is supposed to work. Furthermore, taking part in the development towards smaller units, yet still maintaining inclusion is extremely interesting and important.

Previous jobs

After completing a degree in Informatics I have worked with administration, projects, IT support and as Technology Manager in associations and companies run by disability organisations.

Personal

My passion is music, both listening to it a lot and to practice it myself. In my spare time, I like to read and also keep my movie- and television interest alive.
