Persoonlijk profiel

Onderwijs en Doceren

Dr. Lenneke Kuijer is Assistant Professor in the Designing Quality in Interaction group in the Department of Industrial Design of TU/e. Lenneke obtained her bachelor, master and PhD degree at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of TU Delft. Her PhD research explored the implications of social practice theory for sustainable design by using a research through design process. Her empirical work focused on the topics of personal washing and keeping warm at home. In her previous post as a Research Associate in the Department of Geography of the University of Sheffield (UK) she worked in the DEMAND Centre (www.demand.ac.uk). Here, she studied relations between infrastructures and practices through a historic case study on space heating in social housing. In parallel, a part-time postdoc position in Interactive Media Design at TU Delft kept her linked to her ‘home discipline’ of design research. Her main interests lie in the areas of social practice theory, research through design, domestic energy demand and the relation between designing computational artefacts and changes in everyday life.

Research profile

Lenneke Kuijer is Assistant Professor in the Future Everyday research cluster. Kuijer is a leading expert in practices-oriented design, a field within design and human-computer interaction research that draws on social practice theories. She is a multidisciplinary researcher who contributes both in social science and design research communities. Her main interests lie in the areas of social practice theory, research through design, domestic energy demand and the relation between designing computational artefacts and changes in everyday life.

Academic background

Lenneke Kuijer obtained her BSc, MSc and PhD degree from the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of TU Delft. Her PhD, granted with distinction in 2014, explored the implications of social practice theory for sustainable design. After her PhD, Kuijer spent two years as a postdoc in the DEMAND Research Centre at the University of Sheffield in the UK. Here, she studied relations between infrastructures and practices through a historic case study on space heating in social housing. In parallel, a part-time postdoc position in Interactive Media Design at TU Delft kept her linked to her ‘home discipline’ of design research. She joined Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as Assistant Professor in 2016.
