Rebekah Rousi is a researcher of user psychology and PhD candidate of Cognitive Science at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. With a background in visual arts and cultural studies, Rousi has brought a Humanities perspective to several projects of human-systems interaction and user psychology, these include: the ITEA2 Easy Interactions project, Theseus and Theseus II. In nature, Rousi's work synthesises problems, challenges and innovations with scientific investigations, aiming at devising consistent methods for measuring factors such as user experience. In 2010, Rousi undertook a 3 month researcher exchange at the University of Adelaide, Australia. Rousi is particularly interested in the psychology of user experience, affective human-technology interactions and the mental factors of design encounters.
