Digital Human Modelling By Women (DHMW) is an international group dedicated to promoting women scientists, and inspiring girls around the world. DHMW wants to empowering women to exchange ideas, results, and visions in STEAM.
DHMW in HF would provide an international forum for women who are passionate about gender equity in the field of human factors to explore the barriers and issues on underrepresentation, and models for increasing the pipeline. Our major goal is to build a community of Women in Digital Human Modelling that will be enable the participants to be aware of and to be engaged in improving the environment for women in human factors careers.
Digital Human Modeling by Women will have a special session in connection to the symposium where participants will hear from expert female researchers and practitioners in the field about their personal and professional experiences.

Johan’s research is focused on biomechanics, with emphasis on car crashes. The research is mainly carried out using computer simulations with human body models, but also includes database studies. A field of specialization is population based simulations, i.e. how system changes influence a population. The goal is to be able to predict the effect of new countermeasures in terms of saved lives/reduced harm, before the system is on the market. Johan defended his PhD thesis in 2015 and before that he worked for more than ten years with computer aided vehicle development, primarily crashworthiness.
