I enjoy working with end users to see that the research performed has an added value in the field. As a project manager I've got the ability to keep the content and financial picture in concordance with each other and provide updates to the relevant stakeholders.
I've got special interest in how to use psychological theories (e.g. on behavior change) and translate these to ICT functions. After which the effects are measured in such a way that it is possible to relate the effects to the objectives and decisions made, both in design and choice of functions. Evaluating each function separately will not provide the answers when implementing a complex ICT solution.
My main use case is research I'm doing with a social robot to improve self-management of children with diabetes, which is really rewarding when getting the feedback from children, parents and medical staff (www.pal4u.eu).
