Miguel Bruns

dr.ir. Miguel Bruns Alonso is assistant professor. He studied industrial design engineering with a focus on (tangible) interaction design. He obtained his doctorate from the Department of Industrial Design Engineering, TU Delft on the project “Relax! Inherent feedback during product interaction to reduce stress” in which he explored how interactive products can respond to behavioral expressions of affect through haptic feedback. Furthermore, he was a visiting scholar on a Fulbright Grant at the Center for Design Research of Stanford University, USA. His current research interests focus on exploring how cultural changes to support wellbeing can be achieved through design. In particular, he is interested in how designers can relate and present the evidence from their design actions to the envisioned cultural change in a meaningful way.
