Personal profile

Research profile

Joyce Westerink is a Full Professor and Chair of Wellbeing & Psychophysiology in the Human Technology Interaction group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Her key areas of expertise include psychology, physiology, user interfaces, human-computer interaction and stress.  

Joyce’s current research focuses on the area of psychophysiology, where she investigates how general wellbeing (mental balance, eudemonia, stress, happiness, arousal) is reflected in our physiology and considers ways to measure it unobtrusively. This opens up a wide range of application areas, including lifestyle, healthcare, business and sports, in which psychophysiological measurements are used to monitor human wellbeing, interpret its changes and possibly guide improvement processes.

Academic background

Joyce Westerink studied physics at Utrecht University, and graduated in 1985. She then joined Philips Research, where she currently holds a position as Principal Scientist, and has been member of several research groups at Philips Research dedicated to personal care products, media interaction, and brain and behavior. For a great part of this time there has been a close connection with TU/e, first carrying out her research on detachment at the TU/e-based Institute for Perception Research (IPO), and recently in the Human-Technology Interaction group. In 1991 she received her Ph.D. from TU/e. 

At Philips and at TU/e she has been working on topics involving human perception and cognition of consumer products: visual perception of display devices, user-friendliness of home entertainment systems, sensory aspects of personal care products, and psychophysiological aspects of user experience. She has been involved in various European projects, and contributed a significant number of articles to books and international journals and holds 15 US patents.
