About Me

The BMS lab supports researchers and students from the BMS faculty and beyond in their scientific work. We supply and support the use of equipment, ranging from simple physiological sensors to fully equipped facilities for social sciences research. Our specialty is creating synergy between social sciences research and technology. As such, we facilitate and create useful tools and software for researchers as well. As a project leader I manage and design the collaborative process between the lab and researchers and consult where possible on the possibilities.

The BMS lab does not just support studies, but is involved in studies on a regular basis as well. Research is mainly focused on the use, impact or implementation of technology on society, research and business.
