What is your background and why did you come to study for a PhD at Surrey?

I did my BSc and MSc at the faculty of Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology. While I was doing my graduation project my thesis supervisor told me about a Microsoft PhD position that was coming up, which was a collaboration between Industrial Design, Microsoft Research, and the Digital World Research Centre in Surrey. I was very interested in the project and thought it was a great opportunity so when I applied and got accepted I came over to be primarily based in Surrey for this PhD. I am formally registered in the Department of Sociology.

However, this has generally been built on empirical studies of children from primary school age upwards, whilst the lives of children in early childhood, ie pre-school, has largely been the province of developmental psychology, pedagogical sciences, and family sociology.
