Functieomschrijving

Assistant professor Context-dependent Data Collection within Systemic Change  Group

“Systemic Change uses design and technology to study socio-technical systems at the level of a community, by designing interventions addressing societal challenges and analyzing their effect on the eco-system”.  The Systemic Change cluster focuses on designing innovations that have impact on systemic structures and groups of people, ultimately aiming to address large-scale issues such as urban health, future mobility and sustainability. Field data is used in novel iterative and circular research-through-design processes involving strategic alliances of stakeholders.

Main focus of this position is the design and development of processes and systems that support context dependent data acquisition, handling, processing for real-time systems that are deployed in the field. The application of artificial intelligence algorithms as well as classic data analysis and visualization techniques will be targeting the three main clusters of the systemic change group: Vitality and Aging, Games and Play and Transformative Practices.
