MSc. Risseeuw, C.C.

Clarice Risseeuw is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering and her research focuses on exploring the potential of Flavobacteria’s living colour for interaction design.

Academic Background

Clarice Risseeuw obtained a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design Engineering as well as a master’s degree in Integrated Product Design at Delft University of Technology. During her studies in Delft and an exchange program at the NTNU, Norway, she was more and more attracted to bio design as it was the perfect way to combine her passions for design and nature. She started working with flavobacteria during her graduation project, in which she characterized, captured and communicated this organism’s vivid structural colourations. Afterwards she joined Caradt’s Biobased Art and Design research group and the Material Experience Lab to continue her research. Still amazed by this beautiful microorganism, Clarice has now returned to Delft University of Technology as a PhD candidate within the Material Experience Lab.
