Education

Eindhoven University of Technology

February 2017 - Present

MSc Human Technology Interaction

During my master, I focus on the interaction between websites and/or mobile applications and users. Because I followed a lot of programming courses I understand web- and software design. I know how difficult it can be to achieve (seemingly easy) user experiences. Psychology courses taught me a lot about human psychology and the effects of modern technologies on humans. Furthermore, I learned how users interact with a website and how to perform user tests. In 2018, I spent six months at the KTH in Stockholm following additional courses of the Human-Computer Interaction faculty located there.

September 2012 - February 2017

BSc Psychology & Technology

During my bachelor, I immediately focused on the ICT part of technology. With courses like Logic & Set theory and Web Development, I got a solid background in programming. The psychology part of my bachelor mostly helped me to get a foundation in academic research. I learned how to read and study scientific papers, perform statistical analysis and conduct my own research. Of course, I also got a pretty good basic understanding of human psychology, especially in relation to technology.

This website is built entirely with plain HTML/CSS/JavaScript code to make it easily maintainable. Also, it was fun and a good exercise to build a website without a framework for a change.
