Vincent van Rheden is a Research Fellow at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction since February 2020. He is an interaction designer/researcher, interested in mixing the digital and physical world. Hi current Doctoral Research explores embodied interaction with data while skiing and running.

Vincent holds a master in Industrial Design from Eindhoven University of Technology(TU/e), where he focussed during his master thesis project on physical interaction design. During the traineeship User System Interaction (TU/e) he extended his knowledge to digital interaction design. As a graduate of this traineeship he worked at the Center for Human-Computer Interaction from May 2016 until August 2017.

From 2017-2020 he gained industrial working experience as a Usability Designer at Canon Production Printing (Venlo, Netherlands).
