I am a PhD candidate at TU Eindhoven researching the potential of sound and soundscapes in design of technology and services for people living with dementia. With a background in architectural engineering, I am interested in designing ambient technologies and interactive spaces, that have a meaningful impact on vulnerable user groups.​​​​​​​
