Dr. ir. Sleeswijk Visser, F.

Assistant Professor 
Design Conceptualization and Communication


During my study at Industrial Design I often missed the human side in designing products. In my Phd project 'Bringing the everyday life of people into design' (2004-2009) I had the chance to dive into the world of user-centred design in industry. Since 2009, I am a part-time assistant professor at TU Delft and my research addresses the different roles of users and other stakeholders in co-design processes. Since 2006, I also run the design research company Contextqueen.
