Niels van Berkel

Hello and welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor at Aalborg University, where I am a member of the Human-Centred Computing group. My research interests lay in Human-Computer Interaction, Social Computing, and Ubiquitous Computing. In particular, I have focused on self-report studies (e.g., Experience Sampling Method), online crowdsourcing, and studying the interaction between humans and artificial intelligence systems. Please see my publication overview for more details.

I previously held positions at University College London’s Interaction Centre, the University of Melbourne’s Interaction Design Lab, and the University of Oulu’s Center for Ubiquitous Computing. Find my up-to-date CV here.

Always happy to talk! Please contact me here.
