Johanne Stege Philipsen is a Postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Language and Communication at SDU. Johanne has a background in Linguistics and Cognitive Semiotics from Aarhus University, and has done work in fields of Semiotics, Interaction studies, and Cognitive ethnography.

Her dissertation was dedicated to the diverse synergies of creative group processes with a special focus on idea generation using LEGO blocks and, among other things, involving the workshop method LEGO Serious Play.
