journal in Child-Computer Interaction by Elsevier.
to TU/e I have worked
as a researcher at Queen Mary University of London and
Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven.
I teach and
research topics related to interaction design, ambient
intelligence environments, persuasive technologies, with a focus on applications,
methods and theoretical issues regarding awareness and privacy, mediated social interaction,
and interaction design and children. In the past I have
worked on user centered design methods, task modeling, formal
specification of user interfaces, UML and software architectures
for user interfaces.
