Dr. Ir. Jaskiewicz, T.J.

Assistant Professor (tenure track)
Industrial Design

Biography

I am an assistant professor at the Design Conceptualisation and Communication (DCC) Section. I specialise in design and research methods and tools involving iterative design prototyping with interactive technology. In my current work I focus on applying these methods to solving problems in various kinds of “smart environments”, ranging from office environments equipped with building management systems to cities sharing their data with their citizens. I also have a particular interest in methods and tools for designing with and for the internet of things (and people), cyber-physical systems and large-scale distributed networks of interactive devices. 

I have a background in urban planning (TU Gdansk) and architectural design (TU Delft). Before pursuing an academic career, I have practiced for several years as an architect and architectural project manager, among others in the experimental architecture firm ONL[Oosterhuis_Lénárd]. As part of my PhD research at the TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture, I investigated tools and methods for iterative designing of interactive and adaptable architectural environments. In my academic pursuits I have always aimed to maintain the link to real world applications, which resulted in co-founding a start-up company developing software for design, simulation and deployment of distributed networks of interactive devices. 

In my current work I’m leading the development of the Building Occupancy Certification System (BOCS) as part of the Climate-KIC Building Technologies Accelerator (BTA) flagship programme. I am also involved in the Horizon 2020 Open4Citizens project. My main teaching involvement is in Interactive Technology DesignInteractive Environments Minor and Interaction & Electronics courses. I’m also always on the lookout for ambitious graduation students who are prepared to embark on carrying out multiple interactive design prototyping iterations throughout their Industrial Deign Engineering graduation track.
