Personal profile

Quote

"I see Interaction Design as a wonderful opportunity to first imagine and then create new interactive products, inspired by the needs and desires of people in their everyday lives."

Research profile

Elise van den Hoven is Associate Professor in the Future Everyday cluster of the Industrial Design department of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Full Professor in the School of Software, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Australia. She has two honorary appointments: honorary senior research fellow at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee (UoD, in the UK) and associate investigator with the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders.
