I research and design (applications of) ambulant psychophysiological measures (typically measured with wearables such as a smartwatch) related to cognitive and emotional states and events in healthcare and other professional contexts. This is captured in the following integrative research lines:
- Research into the reliability and validity of new wearable bio-sensor technology. To what extent are physiological measurements from wearables comparable to State-of-the-Art physiological measurements in the lab?
- Studying physiological and psychological processes “in the wild” using experience sampling methods. Can this knowledge help to advice or even intervene more effectively (just in time) in the professional and care context?
- Design research in which information, advice or interventions on the basis of real-time physiological and psychological parameters is designed to reduce risks, inefficiency and suffering in patients and professionals in healthcare.
