I was born and raised in Arnhem. After finishing secondary school I moved to Enschede to follow the bachelor computer science and the Master Human Media Interaction at the University of Twente. During my Master I did an internship at the Telematica Instituut in the context of the eXtended Home, eXtended Life project. In 2009 I started to graduate on the COPD.com project at NOVAY and in cooperation with Roessignh Research and Development and the MST hospital in Enschede. In December 2009 I finished my Master’s Thesis called “COPD home interaction device”
In March 2010 I started as a PhD student at the University of Twente on the European project SmarcoS. I am interested in human computer interaction, user studies and evaluations, and mobile user interfaces.
