Alwin de Rooij received the Master of Science degree with distinction in Media Technology from the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science of Leiden University in Leiden, The Netherlands. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the interfaculty ArtScience of The Royal Academy of Art and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, The Netherlands. His work has been published in the field of interactive systems and shown at internationally renowned venues such as V2_, Discovery Festival, and Todays Art. Currently, he is pursuing a PhD in creativity science at the Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice, City University London.
Alwin de Rooij is a transdisciplinary researcher with an interest in the intersections of nature, art, and technology. His recent work focuses on the possibilities of affect as an interface to human cognition applied to the design of interactive systems, taking both the person and the machine perspective. Previous work includes the development and implementation of design theories for alternative modes of non-verbal affective communication for robotic media. Currently, his work focuses on the intersections of affective science, creativity science, and physiological computing to inform the design of technology that aims to support people's creative processes.
