We live in a data-driven world, which triggers the way research in health technology is carried out. This fact results in the evolution of digital health technologies which become more and more data-driven and neglects the way people experience their health data. As an expert researcher of experience design, I work on discovering ways to better understand people’s experiences with (digital health) data (see this paper). Meanwhile, I work on developing tools and research projects to make developments in this field more tangible (see this chapter) and long-lasting (see this paper), and contribute to people’s data sensemaking practices.
Currently, I am interested in the roles of (data) interaction design in health and wellbeing, especially in self-tracking of physical activity and sports. My work combines physiology and psychology with interaction design in understanding and designing meaningful (data) interactions for engagement in physical activity and sports.

The courses that I have been giving mostly focus on user-centered design, interaction design, creativity and design thinking, and design for behavior change.
I am currently contributing to Industrial Design Engineering at both Bachelor’s and Master’s levels. I am also involved in the Creativity and Design Thinking course at Twente Graduate School. I regularly supervise Bachelor’s and Master’s students.
