Msc. Vegt, N.J.H.

PhD candidate 
Industrial Design (Human Information and Communication Design)

Biography

In February 2011 I obtained my Master’s degree at Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology. As a PhD in Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology I’m currently conducting research on how games can be used for behavior change (the G-Motiv project). I specifically investigate the effect of social game elements on the behavior and experience of players in a multiplayer game. I follow a research through design approach where the design process of the games is as valuable for gaining knowledge as testing them.
