Yvonne’s passion lies in designing products that contribute to the quality of people’s lives and finds the healthcare sector to be the most impactful way to achieve this. From her experience in researching and designing medical products, she learned that it is vital to explore the context of use in addition to co-creating with the users. As a UX researcher at WEAREREASONABLEPEOPLE, she works with Philips Design on several healthcare projects. She is constantly experimenting on how to include user research in product development so that the user needs are understood by all stakeholders.
Her interest in human-product interaction within the healthcare sector has its roots back to her bachelors’ studies and she continued further by pursuing MSc in Design for Interaction with a specialisation in Medisign at the Delft University of Technology.
