After finishing my PhD at the department of Industrial Design, Eindhoven University of Technology, I started as a Postdoctoral researcher at Vital@2040. In my PhD I investigated how design can support and engage people to maintain being active.
Although exercising is known for a lot of benefits, it is not always fun to do. With that in mind, for some it is hard to translate these sport intentions into actual exercising. This is why in my PhD, I designed for different phases of the day that influence a potential exercise session. Through designing wearable technology and artefacts I aim to eventually support and motivate people in making the decision to go exercise more often. If you're curious, check out some of the projects and publications!
