has a background in artificial intelligence and cognitive neuropsychology. He is full professor of Cognition and Affect in Human-Technology Interaction at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He has an active research program on the impact of media technology on human psychology, and the use of psychology to improve technology design. His current projects deal with the ways in which media technology can transform our sense of self and other, and can influence prosocial and healthy behaviors. He has a keen interest in the relation between data science, AI and psychology, and works on technological innovations (e.g., sensor-enabled mobile technologies, virtual environments) that make possible novel forms of human behaviour tracking, combining methodological rigor with ecological validity. He is a member of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science in Den Bosch, and is scientific director of the interdisciplinary Center for Humans and Technology at TU/e, which explicitly focuses on people- and value-centred perspectives of technology understanding and design.
