Despite being an Industrial Design Engineer, which she became in 2000 at Delft Technical University, she concentrated more on research than designing industrial products. She started off in a research project at the university for the Ministry of Social Affairs, and after half a year became the general manager of an ergonomic design and consultancy company, named De Vesting Design. Two years later she decided to start her own venture in ergonomic consultancy under the name illand, and additionally got back in education and research at Delft Technical University. Currently she teaches at the Hanze University Groningen and researches at the University of Groningen. The core of her teachings is still design methodology, but her field of interest switched from human centred- to world centred design; or -You-CD to -DoubleYou-CD.

Severina Pacifico is Associate Professor in Food Chemistry at the Department of Environmental, Biological and Pharmaceutical Science and Technologies of the University of Campania “Luigi Vanvitelli” (Caserta, Italy). Since 2010 and up to 2018 she was a researcher in Organic Chemistry at the same University. Her research interest is in Food Chemistry and Natural Products Chemistry fields. It primarily aims to the phytochemical study of food plants and their by-products and to the chemical characterization of secondary metabolites therein by spectroscopic and spectrometric techniques. The research activity is also turned to UHPLC-HRMS/MS metabolic profiling and fingerprinting of natural extracts, and to the evaluation of antioxidant, chemopreventive and neuroprotective properties of natural products. At present, Prof. Pacifico’s scientific activity has been documented by 100 papers, published in peer-reviewed international journals, 4 book chapters and several communications at national and international conferences.

Simona Piccolella, Dr. PhD, is a researcher in General and Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of “Environmental, Biological and Pharmaceutical Science and Technologies” of the University of Campania “L. Vanvitelli” (Caserta, Italy) since 2011. In 2010 she obtained a Ph.D. in "Resources and Environment" at the same University. Her research activity deals with the chemistry of bioactive natural products from medicinal and/or edible plants and fruits. The main topics are the structural characterization of plant secondary metabolites by mass spectrometry, the LC/MS-based metabolic profiling and the in vitro evaluation of antioxidant capacity, cytotoxic or chemopreventive and neuroprotective properties of natural products (phytocomplexes and pure compounds). At present, the scientific activity has been documented by 41 papers, published in peer-reviewed international journals, 2
