Assoc. Prof. Willem-Paul Brinkman, Delft University of Technology
Title TBD

In 2003 Willem-Paul Brinkman received his PhD degree in the area of human-computer interaction from Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands. In 2004 he obtained his Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education from Brunel University of West London, where he worked for five years as a lecturer, before moving to Delft University of Technology in 2007 where he now works as an associate professor in the Interactive Intelligence group that works on understanding and engineering human-agent collaboration. Brinkman's primary research interests are human-computer interaction, behavior change support systems, specifically eHealth systems including virtual reality therapy systems, and virtual health agents. He is fascinated by eHealth systems that
include conversational agents that offer psychological support. His ultimate objective is to establish an autonomous eHealth system with a digital psychologist that can assist individuals in achieving a broad set of behavior change goals ranging from overcoming mental illness to lifestyle modification for coping with a chronic illness.
