Åsa's research focus is within the field of Co-design: developing knowledge and methods of co-creation that affect the context of using/experiencing design, and practicing design. It includes the role and responsibility of the designer for the user experience , the inclusion of marginalized users (norm-creative design/ inclusive design), for creative and innovative outcomes (design thinking) and social responsibility (social sustainability) knowledge and methodology for different contexts such as products, services, systems, places and spaces.

A great interest and dedication is also design education: methods and means to motivate, involve and inspire students in their own design learning experience. Åsa for example teaches in the courses Design: method and process, Design Research, Advanced graphic design, Advanced product design and is responsible for the Master and Bachelor thesis courses in Graphic design and Industrial design engineering.
