Marco graduated as an Interaction Designer at the faculty of Art, Media and Technology at the Utrecht School of the Arts. As a PhD candidate at Industrial Design Engineering at Delft University of Technology, he explored Interaction Design academically in terms of understanding how interactive media relates to our physical world. His research focussed on how to design engaging interactions by understanding the interplay of the product, the expertise of the user and characteristics of the task situation. In 2007, Marco worked as an Assistant Professor at Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology where he continued working on engaging interactions in relation to Product Service Systems. After having worked some time as an independent design consultant in industry, Marco returned to Delft In 2011 to work further on Product Service Systems in the context of intelligent play environments. Currently, as Assistant Professor Interaction Design, Marco’s research focuses on how to create future interaction styles and paradigms inspired by emerging technologies, such as Robotics and the Internet-of-Things.
