I am a post-doctoral researcher working with Pieter Desmet in the Design Aesthetics group of Delft University of Technology’s Industrial Design faculty. I have a background in computer science, cognitive science and psychology and recently completed a PhD on the moment-to-moment measurement of emotion during person-product interaction under the supervision of Paul Hekkert and Pieter Desmet. I am currently developing a questionnaire to measure feelings like freshness or femininity across cultures.

I am interested in everything that happens between people and the things they use or work with and the ways to study them from psychophysiology and behavioral observation to machine learning and online research. In the course of my work on the measurement of emotion, I also developed an interest in psychometrics and the practical implications of measurement reliability and validity for real life product evaluation.
