About

I am currently pursuing Master's degree in Interaction Design at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Before this, I received a Bachelor's degree in Computing Science with a minor in Industrial Design in The Netherlands. This is also where I have worked as interaction designer, front-end developer, and teaching assistant.

I'm passionate about shaping technology as a beautiful and empowering tool for people to realise their own ambitions.

I enjoy all parts of the design process, and in particular I like creating interactive prototypes to validate ideas or guide product development. Above all, I strive to keep learning and giving back through sharing and teaching.
