Jouke Verlinden (PhD Design Engineering) is Associate Professor Augmented Fabrication, exploring the domains of Augmented Reality and Digital Fabrication for improving (or better: augmenting!) human-centered design. Past projects include 3D printed bridges, bicycles, and couture.

After 18 years of setting up research and education in these fields at TU Delft (IDE), he transitioned to the University of Antwerp, Faculty of Design Sciences. Together with graduate students and staff, Jouke extending understanding of human-robot interaction, cultural heritage of the future, and open factories of the future.

Jouke is editor of the international journal of Automation Technology and the international journal on interactive design, engineering and manufacturing.
