Marie is a design researcher based in STBY’s Amsterdam office. She is mostly involved in the research projects STBY run out of Amsterdam, for which she deals with both operational management and the actual research itself, taking responsibility for fieldwork, analysis and delivery. She also takes responsibility for the much of the quantitative work we do, this being one of several distinct fields of research Marie has a background in from her academic work.
Together with Maaike Schuitema, she’s also in charge of the operational management of the Amsterdam office itself.
Marie’s initial studies were in cognitive psychology at Maastricht University, also working there for a period as a student assistant. After passing her BA, she subsequently obtained an MSc. in mediatechnology at Leiden University, with her focus here being on ‘creative research’. During these masters studies, she spent a 4 month period as intern in STBY’s Amsterdam office, returning full-time upon her graduation, first as a research assistant and since 2012 as a design researcher.
