“To provide good (long-term) care now, and in the future, we will have to look for creative solutions. Technological innovations can be good solutions for staff shortages and ageing. Here, co-creation is important because end users must be involved in every phase of development.”


Developing technology for people and with people is what gets me excited.


  • I work a lot on projects with international collaborations (GUARDIAN, HAAL, Lift and Shower System).
  • I specialise in interaction between humans and technology and graduated in social robotics (Human-Robot Interaction).
  • From my studies, I have extensive experience in UX design and user research.
  • I have a passion for both technology and (elderly) care.
