I started my higher education with the Bachelor Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology after which I proceeded in the follow-up Master’s program. I graduated my Bachelor with a design project on the physical visualization of personal finance data. This is where my passion for designing for and with data actually started, which I continued in the first two projects of the Master. In my M1.1 I did a group project on sportswear visualizing the warming up of the body and in my M1.2 I did an internship at the University College London Interaction Centre (UCLIC) on the physicalization of activity data. During this period in London I discovered my second passion: doing research. This made me decide to join the research track of our department under the guidance of Saskia Bakker and continue to develop myself as a constructive design researcher, with a specialization in the competencies User & Society and Technology & Realization.
