Author: Pieter Stappers
After an education in experimental physics (MSc 1984), Pieter Jan Stappers made the switch to Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft, and followed a research path which led from human perception, spatial imagery, Virtual Reality (PhD in 1992), to design tools and participatory design techniques. His current activities as full professor of design techniques (as of 2002) encompass coordinating the Faculty's Graduate School, being informal director of ID-StudioLab, and heading the research subprogramme on tools and techniques for the conceptual phase of design.
