Personal profile

Research profile

Evert van Loenen is a Full Professor and Chair of Smart Lighting in the Department of the Built Environment of the Technical University Eindhoven (TU/e). His fields of expertise include building technology, atomic physics and molecular physics, user interfaces, multimedia, Smart Lighting and Ambient Intelligence. Evert has been closely involved in Ambient Intelligence research from the start of the field in 1999, more specifically in user centered design, user system interaction, context awareness and experience research. His current research focuses on light and health in the built environment, exploring how environmental factors such as daylight, artificial light, views and sounds impact health and health recovery processes.

Academic background

Evert obtained his MSc in Technical Physics from the University of Groningen and his PhD from the University of Utrecht on surface science research performed at the FOM institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics. In addition to his work at TU/e Evert is Principal Scientist in the Human Interaction & Experiences department of Philips Research. Before joining Philips Research in Eindhoven, he worked at IBM Research in Yorktown Heights as visiting scientist. He managed one of the first and largest European projects in the field of Ambient Intelligence, the ITEA - AMBIENCE project, which was awarded with the 2003 ITEA Achievement Award. Evert holds more than 10 patents and is author/co-author of more than 90 scientific papers.
