  • User centered design
  • Human-computer interaction
  • Victim-offender mediation

Lisanne is especially interested in the studying social interactions between humans, and interactions between humans and computers. Lisanne was a research intern at MintLab at KU Leuven from March until May 2016. During her internship, she assisted in the MeToDi project. The aim of this project was to create a toolkit for the development of parental and teacher apps. Lisanne obtained a Master of Science in Sociology from the University of Oxford in 2013, and a Bachelor Liberal Arts and Sciences (cum laude) from the University of Maastricht in 2012. Her Bachelor curriculum consisted of a mix between Sociology, Media Studies and Philosophy. Apart from her academic endeavors, Lisanne also founded Behaviorwise in 2015, a company devoted to helping clients improve their UX and conversion rate online.

Research projects

‘Design and implementation of ICT-based communication systems in victim-offender mediation’

This PhD project is part of an interdisciplinary research project granted through the Tech4People program of the University of Twente. Crime is a major societal problem as it highly impacts individual's lives and undermines society as a whole. This project's ambition is to realize ground-breaking advances in the effectiveness and applicability of victim-offender mediation, through the design and implementation of ICT-based communication systems. The project is supervised by Dr. Sven Zebel, Dr. Mariëlle Stoelinga, Prof. Dr. Ir. Boudewijn Haverkort and Prof. Dr. Ellen Giebels.
