MSc. Faber, J. S.
Jasper Faber is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. His main research interests lie in user-centered design for eHealth interventions, health behaviour change, and improving healthcare equity and reselience, with a particular focus on supporting individuals with a low Socioeconomic Position (SEP) to adopt healthier lifestyles.
Jasper aims to develop solutions specifically tailored to the unique skills, needs, and preferences of individuals with a lower SEP. This forms the core of his research, aiming to bridge gaps in healthcare systems and contribute to a more equitable healthcare landscape. In his current research, which is a collaboration between Delft University of Technology and Erasmus Medical Centre, Jasper delves into understanding the attitudes of individuals with a low SEP towards health, healthcare, and eHealth, and translating this understanding into practical and applicable recommendations. These recommendations benefit professionals who develop and adapt interventions for this target group, and concurrently guide Jasper's design of a tailored intervention within the context of cardiac rehabilitation.
Jasper's interest in this realm was triggered by the existing inefficiencies in healthcare. He recognised the potential of technology in shaping a more resilient and future-proof healthcare system and was captivated by the intersection of healthcare, technology, and user experience. This fascination led him to specialise in user-centered design for vulnerable target groups, with a particular emphasis on health behaviour change and the potential of eHealth to drive resilience and patient-centeredness in healthcare systems. Jasper graduated with distinction from his Master's program in Integrated Product Design at Industrial Design Engineering, where he developed a smart asthma inhaler to improve medication adherence among individuals with low health literacy. This project showcased his belief in the potential of technology to improve healthcare systems and set the foundation for his current work.
