Emily Bakker

I am a student in Human Factors & Engineering Psychology at the University of Twente. During my bachelors in psychology, I became more and more drawn to the development of software and technology. My interests lie in the diverse aspects of human technology interaction. For example how to align systems to the brain capacities of the end use, how to foster information processing through interface design and how do we learn about the machine. I did research into the development of mental models and misconceptions of programming with children, and have experience in teaching programming to psychology students at university  of applied sciences. Right now, I am doing research in the development of systematic method for aligning end-user development tools (including low-code) to the mental models of their users. Besides that, I work on projects with InformationGrid.
