Co-director of Food and Eating Design Lab

by Gijs

Just recently (as recently as this month) I became the co-director of the TU Delft’s Food and Eating Design Lab which is lead by Rick Schifferstein. I have already had the privilege of meeting some of the lab’s other members and students, and I am excited to start working with them. Topic-wise, my work at the lab will mainly revolve around the role of technology in social interactions at the dining table (of course, viewed from an embodied perspective). This is in line with previous work I did together with Charles Spence and Maurizio Mancini on Digital Commensality and with a larger group of people on a related topic which we called Computational Commensality (if you are interested, we are actually running a Frontiers Research Topic on this). More tasty stuff to follow soon!
