Elisabeth Brinth Refstrup is from Copenhagen Denmark. She is currently a Master student at the University of Copenhagen, where she is studying Communication & IT. She also did her BSc in Communication & IT, which she finished in 2018. Her Bachelor project was completed in collaboration with the Quality of Life Lab and looked at the experience of giving and receiving gifts ‘on the go’. A central aspect was to look at the motivation factors for giving and focused on design, development, HCI, and evaluation of a mobile service platform. She ended up with a high fidelity prototype of an app, where both companies and private people were interested in using it.
On the side, Elisabeth works at Nordea as a student helper in the Wholesale Banking department. Elisabeth has been a student helper in Nordea for more than three years, and her main area right now is internal communication via IT.
At the moment she is currently preparing to work with the QoL Lap on her Master thesis in collaboration with Cecilie Rosentoft and Alba Kejser Perez investigating the motivation factors needed around public participation in health and science studies via a chatbot.
