Pia de Boer is a PhD candidate at the Department of Communication Science. Her research interests focus on (1) determining what skills are necessary to use Internet-of-Things beneficially and on (2) measuring those skills among the general user population from an individual perspective. This should provide a better understanding of the impact of IoT.
