About Me

Have you ever thought about the devices you are wearing against your skin? This has an influence on how you experience and use a product. By considering the material- and surface properties of a product and by engineering these, the funtionality and resulting effects can be influenced.

During both Bachelor and Masters Industrial Design Engineering at the University of Twente I discovered my interest for surface engineering and healthcare.

As a PhD candidate, within my research I draw attention to the role of surface engineering in (medical) products. I’m looking how the microclimate, or in other words the local region between your skin and the product comprising the combined effects of temperature, humidity and airflow can be regulated through engineering the surface or contact interface. This with the aim to innovate healthcare products, because I believe “Preventing is better than curing”.

Next to my own PhD research, I am appointed as a junior lecturer, in which I am mainly involved in the Bachelor and Master programmes of Industrial Design Engineering as a (project) tutor and thesis supervisor. Additionally, I co-teach the course Nature-Inspired Design and Engineering. I’m always keen on learning about – and implementing new educational approaches and innovation.
