Hi, I am Rosa.
I am an explorative, user-centred design researcher, who likes to generate insights regarding our future everyday through the creation of physical artefacts.
Having studied Industrial Design at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), where I obtained both my Bachelor and Master in Science, I am interested in designing products for the use of generating knowledge. During my studies, I developed myself as a design researcher, with a focus on aesthetics and qualitative research methods. My interests lie with researching the (future) every day and designing physical interactions for the digital world, for example Crypto. In order to do so, I follow an iterative and explorative process, which moves between making, testing, and reflecting. I am currently working as a research assistant at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, where I focus on researching the user experience of inflatable data physicalisations.
