Dr. ir. Vermeeren, A.P.O.S.

Associate Professor 
Industrial Design Engineering


As an Associate Professor at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE), TU Delft, I teach and do research on interaction and experience design related issues. After graduating at the faculty of IDE on a ‘Future User Interface Design’ project for Océ Nederland BV, I set up the faculty’s first usability lab and started doing research on usability. In 2009 I received my PhD on methodological issues of usability testing (‘What’s the problem? Studies on identifying usability problems in user tests’). My current research focuses on persuasive interactive experiences. You can find more information about my research on my research page


I am a member of the Interaction Design Research group led by Elisa Giaccardi, in the faculty’s section Human Information Communication Design, and I am a member of the faculty’s Persuasive Gaming Group. I am involved in supervising PhD candidates, as well as in various Bachelor and Master courses related to Interaction and Experience Design (you can find more information about my educational activities on my education page). I am PhD mentor of a varying number of PhD candidates (usually around 10).
