I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). I also hold a visiting faculty position at the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. My work is in the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Physical Computing at the intersection of Design, Engineering, and Computer Science.
Research — My research is on Tangible and Physical Computing that blends and integrates data, interactions, and interfaces into real-world applications on digital health, education, industry 4.0, and knowledge work. Please find a selection of my publications and a full list on Google Scholar, dblp, and ACM DL. I work on:
(1) Collaborative augmented device ecologies: 'design for the future of work' where devices are merged into larger intelligent ecologies that support collaboration, nomadic work, and new emerging work practices (see [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]).
(2) Physicalizing human-data interaction: 'support from sensor to physicalisation' and study new co-creation processes, concepts, interaction paradigms, and data embodiments for non-expert human-data/AI interaction (see [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]).
Teaching — I teach and direct university-level courses on design engineering, human-computer interaction, and physical computing. My teaching interest is in courses that combine design, HCI, and computer science. I hold a PGCert for 'Academic Practice' and am a 'Fellow of the Higher-Education Academy (HEA)'.
