I like to…
Starting a company, creating new products and finding the right business model always excites me. Some initiatives succeed, some fail or end naturally. Here are a few initiatives I (co)founded.
Over the past years I’ve given courses for ten year olds, high school students, university students and professionals. These are a few of my favorite courses:
Learning through Virtual Reality
My own Honours Class, which I started at Leiden University in 2014. A research course for students from different backgrounds at bachelor and master level. Together we create VR & AR prototypes that could be valuable in education.
In 2018 I taught Human-Computer Interaction for 50 students from the Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence program at Tilburg University. I developed this new course, where we focus on emerging human-computer interfaces and how these help humans in solving complex problems.
Masterclass: Virtual Reality for teaching & training
A two-day program optimized for educational professionals from diverse backgrounds: primary schools, high schools, vocational education, universities, libraries and private training companies.
With a mixed background in physics, philosophy, AI and media technology, I like to think about the effects of digital technologies on our society. I’m particularly interested in how emerging human-computer interfaces like Virtual & Augmented Reality can change the way we learn, create and solve problems.
Sometimes these thoughts result in an article or research blog, which is part of my external PhD research at Leiden University, supervised by prof.dr. Bas Haring.
Although other professional activitities demand more attention, I still like to create projects. I can program and design well enough to make ideas come to life. Here are a few projects I collaborated in:
