Hi! I'm Dirk, an academic at Northumbria University, and co-founder of the Tech4Animals Lab. I work mostly in the fields of Technology and Society and Animal-Computer Interaction (ACI) employing my skills from a variety of fields such as requirements engineering and anthrozoology to understand and (re-)design the way we build and use animal technologies. I do this along three main strands of research:
The role of technology in human-animal relations
Security and privacy of animal technology
Computational animal behavior analysis
Are you interested in working together on animal technologies? Please get in touch – I am always open to collaborations.
