Research profile

Human BEHAVIOR and DESIGN which helps people to experience their lives better are two of my greatest interests.

I gained my master’s degree in Human Technology Interaction in 2012. Afterwards I worked as a user experience design trainee on various real and fictional design projects.
In 2014 I started my PhD in Human Technology Interaction group, TU/e. In my project I investigate the influences of the surrounding social and physical environment on the developments of aggressive behavior in an urban nightlife setting – Stratumseind (the longest bar street in the Netherlands). At the moment I focus on methods aimed to quantify the atmosphere as based on our research we believe that atmosphere is an attribute of socio-physical context that might be related to the developments of aggressive behavior.

All in all, I ended up working on this topics not by just an accident, but mainly, because I am interested in how social and physical environment influence the behavior and physical and psychological wellbeing of people; and how we as designers, researchers or artists could mold and change our environment for the better.

Next to my PhD I occasionally participate in light festivals (e.g. Glow’14’16 and Klanglicht’17) and create in collaboration with other artists installations that enhance our experience and broaden knowledge about the world around us (e.g., Experiencing Light’14 conference dinner).
