Student projects I would like to coach
"My main topics of interest are tangible interaction and sound design. I am interested researching in the role of sound in the  design and the interaction with IoT systems."

Coaching style
"For all students, I try to understand what they need the most. How will this student make progress in the design process? How does this student function best?  I spend a lot of time listening, asking questions, suggestion alternatives or exchanging different perspectives, however without dictating these alternatives. I am very honest. If I am worried about a student, I will say so. However, I am ususally very friendly."
