Background

I studied Industrial Design Engineering at the Technical University of Delft. I graduated in 2002 on a wearable, tangible social interaction product, in a project largely carried out in the Affective Computing group at the MIT MediaLab in Boston.
I have worked as a strategic, conceptual and technical designer, and have led design and development projects for various interaction and communication products for the consumer market, including several patent applications.

I have taught and coached students and professionals in this field of design in the Netherlands, Norway, Italy, Sweden and Brazil.

I headed the R&D department in a multinational company, where, apart from running product design and innovation projects with an international team, I gained hands-on experience with mass-production systems in western Europe as well as in low-cost labour countries of the time, i.e. China and Mexico.

Since 2008 I have been working on design projects and workshops, concerning the convergence of fashion products and personal, mobile, consumer electronics.

What I do at UID

I am Program Director for the MFA Programme in Interaction Design and I contribute to the teaching in the different educations at UID. Concurrently I am in the final stages of finishing my PhD studies.

Research

My research focuses on the physical side of mediated social interactions. Through designing tools for people to get a grip on their social context he is researching how designers influence the constitution of technological systems and the emergent behavior of groups of people that use them. More on my research blog...

Talk to me about:

Emergent behavior of (complex) systems, social dynamics, game and play, communication/interaction media, convergence of physical and virtual (social) environments, social (bio) feedback, corporal literacy.
