Alexandra Weilenmann has since the late 90's studied the use of mobile technology. Drawing upon methods from social science, she investigates the use of mobile technologies in a range of very different settings. She has studied the use of radio and awareness technology at an airport, teenagers' and seniors' use of mobile phones, mobile phones in traffic, and hunters's use of mobile technology. She has published in such venues as International Journal of Human Computer Interaction, Journal of Pragmatics, Personal and Ubiquitous Computing, and Environment and Planning A. Weilenmann's research has also been widely recognized in media, including all major Swedish news media, as well as several international, e.g. CNN International and Times.

During 2010-2012 Weilenmann is working as a VinnMER fellow with a research grant from VINNOVA (Swedish Govermental Agency for Innovation Systems). The project is titled Mobile Services for Interaction, Communication and Learning, and involves Mobile Life VinnExcellence Centre at Stockholm University and LinCS as partners.Weilenmann holds a PhD in informatics (2003) and is associate professor (2009) in applied information technology. She is employed at the Department of Applied Information Technology at the University of Gothenburg/Chalmers.
