Mads Vedel Jensen is professor at University of Southern Denmark. His work is based on research in Interaction Design at the SPIRE Center, which is a part of the Mads Clausen Institute at Alsion in Sønderborg. More precisely he research in tangible interaction, which is an area that examines more of the human skills and senses than the interaction with the mouse, screen and keyboard that we are used to. He has been looking a lot at “skilled practice”, i.e. adroit and well executed “practical” work, as an inspiration to the design of new interaction. Additionally, he teach the following courses: ”Mechatronic” ,” Interaction Design” and ”IT Product Design”.

His academic background consists of a Bachelor in Industrial Design from Højer Design College, a Master in IT Product Design and a Ph.D. - both fom the Madsen Clausen Institute, Denmark.
