Nice to

meet you

My name is Myrte Elise Thoolen and, currently, a PhD candidate at the Eindhoven University of Technology at the department of Industrial Design. I am also a (UX) design researcher at the Pleyade Innovation Team of care organisation Pleyade Arnhem. I am interested in designing HCI and novel technologies to enrich the lives of people and add value to their well-being. I am passionate about understanding the diverse needs and abilities of individuals - especially within the spectrum of dementia - and how we can design technologies that are fluid, flexible and adaptive for strengthening people's preserved abilities. In doing so, I am embracing a research through design approach in which experience-centered design interventions are evaluated in real life contexts together with all vital actors.
