Joyce H.D.M. Westerink studied physics at Utrecht University, and graduated in 1985. Since then, she joined Philips Research and specialized on topics involving human perception and cognition of consumer products: visual perception of display devices, user-friendliness of home entertainment systems, sensory aspects of personal care products and psychophysiological aspects of user experience. The first 14 years she did this research on detachment at the Tue-based Institute for Perception Research (IPO), and since then she has been member of several research groups at Philips Research dedicated to personal care products, media interaction, and brain and behavior. Her current interest is in psychophysiology and human wellbeing. Written output of her work can be found in some 35 articles in books and international journals and 7 US patents.
