Hej!


︎  My name is Marie Louise Juul Søndergaard. I’m an interaction designer and researcher, living with my partner and a lot of plants in Stockholm. I work as a  Postdoc in the research project “Digital Women’s Health”, part of the Interaction Design team at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. In 2018 I received my PhD degree in Interaction Design from Aarhus University in Denmark. You can read more about my PhD dissertation “Staying with the Trouble through Design” here ︎.

︎  I love doing research, collaborating with people and working with students! I love to travel and explore new food and culture. In Stockholm, I enjoy taking in the city’s art scene and beautiful nature, go ice skating and skiing in winter and camping in summer. Above all, I try to stay calm, energized and positive by appreciating and learning new things. Currently, I’m learning taekwondo, Vietnamese and Swedish! 
︎  In my research, I try to combine my strong feminist beliefs, curiousity and design experience to positively impact people and show that there are other ways of living. I draw on design theory, critical theory, software studies and feminist technoscience, to explore the social, cultural and political issues of design of intimate technologies. Through my design practice, I explore complex design themes related to gender and sexuality to better understand and question how future technologies—such as wearables, self-tracking and IoT—shape our everyday lives and our personal selves.

︎  As part of my design practice, I have worked with menstruation tracking, sex technologies, electromagnetic hypersensitivity and voice assistants through co-design workshops, exhibitions, interviews and fieldwork. I have worked cross-culturally in Denmark, Sweden and Japan, and collaborated with high school students and people with physical disabilities in the exploring and design of intimate technologies.
