My experience in usability and interaction research started in my Bachelor thesis in 2006. Since then, I've developed an interest in researching the principles of human-computer interaction in new interaction paradigms.

Currently I am a PhD candidate in the Informatics department at the University of California, Irvine, where my research focuses on privacy in personalized systems (advisor: Alfred Kobsa). My research as a student and a researcher at the Human-Technology Interaction group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) focussed on human-like agents and recommender systems, and this work is still ongoing today (advisor: Martijn Willemsen).

The menu above lists my main current and past research activities.
