Education and Teaching

Squad: Health

Exemplary graduation projects of students I coached

Daan Matthijse: Drynights

Research focus, projects I’d like to coach:

“I would like to focus on projects that have to do with digital technologies for children and supporting behavior change. I also am interested to coach research projects that develop methodology for design and design research, especially related to designing for behavior change, chronic disease management.”


What is your vision on education/coaching?
“I like to encourage, inspire and share my enthusiasm for our field, I like to help students develop their profile as researchers, both in terms of competences but also in terms of their identity as researchers.”
