    Parallel to teaching, I've joined this research group at the HvA to focus on Retail and interactivity.

    The two related projects involve shop improvement via VR/AR-storytelling, website and app optimisation, use of sensors (RFID/NFC/iBeacons), fitting and delivery (apparel) and personalisation for customers.

    This collaboration with several companies is based on reallife challenges, combined with academic research and courses for students - we are working together and enhancing each others expertise. Topics that students deal with are Service Design, UX, Data Driven Design, Adaptive Content, building prototypes and of course fieldwork (research).

    The related clients are:
    Project "Redesigning the Experience" (Apparel) - Denham, eDolly, VR Owl
    Project "Proof of Concept" (Bookstores) - AKO, Boekhandel Voorhoeve, Athenaeum, De Nieuwe Boekhandel
