I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Dutch national research institute of Mathematics and Computer Science (Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica). My research focuses on human factors in computing systems, developing Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics and qualitative evaluation methods for measuring and understanding immersive experiences, such as social virtual reality, mixed reality, and multiscreen interactive TV experiences.
Besides my academic career, I am (almost) a professional cake designer/maker, who runs a cafe "Cake Researcher" in the city center of Delft on Saturdays (https://cake-researcher.com).
Mar 2017-Feb 2019
My work in the 2-IMMERSE project is to conduct field studies at sports events (e.g., MotoGP, FA Cup) to understand the broadcasting workflow, and develop new object-based TV production platforms for multiscreen interactive TV viewing experiences.
HORIZON 2020 VRTOGETHER PROJECT
Nov 2018-Nov 2020
My work in the VRTogether project is to develop Quality of Experience (QoE) metrics and evaluation methods for social VR experiences.
HORIZON 2020 TRACTION PROJECT
Feb 2020-Feb 2022
My work in the Traction project is to understand opera experiences and develop technologies to bring opera from the elite to the public, enabling opera co-creation as a path for social and cultural inclusion.
This thesis contributes to the understanding of crowd behavior from the perspective of individual crowd members. The studies compared the data collected from crowd members' self-reports and those from proximity sensors, revealing relations between self-reported emotions and grouping behavior in crowds.
