Laure De Vos

Laura holds a bachelor’s degree in Digital Marketing (AP Antwerp) and is currently pursuing her degree in Communication Sciences, New Media & Society (Ghent University). For her internship at imec-mict-UGent, together with Floor Denecker (junior researcher) and Prof. dr. Mariek Vanden Abeele, she will be working on the digital well-being of young parents. They will investigate how the smartphone use of these parents can influence the partner relationship, quality time within the family and the behavior of children. All of this by using a combination of methods: mobileDNA, experience sampling method (ESM) and dyadic questionnaires. Besides this, she will be creating a toolbox on how to use mobileDNA-data as a trigger for qualitative research.

Next to this internship, under guidance of Prof. dr. Lieven De Marez and Ben Robaeyst (junior researcher), together with her challenge team, Laura is creating a next-generation interface for Design Museum Ghent to attract unserved audiences.
