Projects per year
My research interests cover serious games, gamification, e-health, (mental) health care, adolescents/children, behaviour change and technology-based intervention research. Initially, my research has mainly focused on developing and examining the effectiveness of these interventions in children and adolescents, but this is now extending to older adults with DDRI. Also, although, my specific expertise is focused on serious gaming I am sure I will be able to translate design, research and commercialization principles to other technological applications. A big question in this upcoming and popular field is, when interventions are effective, how do people engage with them, who benefits the most and how do these interventions work.
