I am a doctoral researcher working at the intersection of Gerontology and technology. My main research interest centers around the development and implementation of assistive technologies that contribute to self-management and care innovation within an aging society. More specifically, my focus lies on researching innovations that facilitate extended independent living of people with dementia and support their caregivers.

I obtained my Master’s degree in Positive Clinical Psychology and Technology from the University of Twente in 2016. Afterwards, I worked as a lecturer in the Bachelor program Psychology and as a junior researcher before I started my PhD project within the Department of Psychology, Health & Technology in August 2018. Alongside my PhD research, I am supervising graduation projects and have taught in courses focused on eHealth development.
