Ir. G. (Geertje) Slingerland
Since I finished both my bachelor and master program in Delft I am already quite familiar at the Delft University of Technology. With a background in Design for Interaction, I like to study how design can change people's behaviour and how we can design certain types of interactions that lead to systematic change. During my graduation I have been focusing on designing for grassroots communities and my PhD research continues in this field.
At TPM, I am working on the BART! (Burger Alert Real-Time) project and research how we can create cohesion and social relationships between neighbours by making use of 'augmented narratives'. In the project, I will use location-based information as a way for neighbours to share their neighbourhood stories and study how this will lead to a sense of community and more neighbourhood awareness.
