I’m an Assistant Professor at the department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology. My interests are amongst others in designing for rehabilitation & healthy living, adaptable systems, internet of things, playful interaction and communities.


Currently, I am secretary of the local energy collective Opgewekt Heeze-Leende, promoting sustainable energy consumption and production within our local community.

In the past I have worked as a UX consultant at Alten. Before that, I did my PhD in Industrial Design on End-user Adaptable Rehabilitation Technology. I have also been part of the User System Interaction programme of the Stan Ackermans Institute, and I hold a MSc degree in Human Media Interaction from the University of Twente.


Together with Iris Soute, I founded Picoo. Picoo is an interactive outdoor game platform that combines the best of traditional outdoor play and interactive gaming.
