Medical adherence is a big problem in healthcare – patients find it hard to take their medicines on time. I’m working on a device that connects to an existing app to help people remember their meds. To facilitate behavioral change, you really need to integrate these devices with people’s lives. I wanted to challenge myself and work on a problem-based project with motivated students from other disciplines. Working for a client also adds a bit of excitement: it feels very professional.

Last year, I developed my prototyping skills. This is very important for my field of study but something you can only learn by doing. This year, I’m focusing on interaction design, which builds nicely on prototype design. My track really supports hands-on learning, including occasionally learning from your mistakes – that’s definitely personal development in the best way.
