dr. Priscilla Esser

Priscilla’s fascination with designing for healthcare started in her graduation project at Delft University of Technology, where she developed a user interface for senior homecare services. Afterwards, she expanded her knowledge of the domain, by doing design research in a PhD project on tele-consultations and a postdoc project on the experience of a children cancer hospital. Currently she develops new communication concepts for ConnectedCare, ranging from mobile apps to social robots, which challenge her to explore topics such as persuasion, affective computing and engagement. Beside her work for ConnectedCare, she works as an editor and instructor for the Interaction Design Foundation, a non-profit organisation developing accessible and affordable Ivy-League level design education.
