Embrace Data-Centric Design!

I am Assistant Professor of Data-Centric Design with the Department of Sustainable Design Engineering (SDE) of the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) of the Delft University of Technology 🧐.

My research lies at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction, Data Science and Design. I hypothesise that the central use of behavioural data in Human-Centred Design can turn challenges and limitations of both fields into flourishing ethical and collaborative opportunities.

For more information, have a look at my vision on research and education and the open-source tools and material I contribute. You’ll find below some excerpt of recent activities. As student, you might also be interested in the open 🚩vacancies or the completed 🎓 graduation projects.
