Background and activities
Activities and interests
My current research activities and interests are situated in the domain of user-centered QoE and include:
- Theoretical foundations of QoE
- Methodological challenges and QoE evaluation: controlled lab research vs. subjective evaluation in more ecologically-friendly research environments, crowd-sourcing based QoE evaluation
- Extension of traditional subjective QoE-measures with alternative explicit, subjective measures as well as implicit, behavioural and physiological measures
- QoE and affective states (leader of task force on emotions and QoE in COST Action IC1003 Qualinet)
- Mixed-methods research on Quality of Experience in different application domains (video QoE, adaptive video streaming, cloud-based applications, gaming)
- Quality of Experience from a macro-temporal perspective and longitudinal research
- Marie Curie fellow (ERCIM post-doctoral fellowship), Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering/ Department of Telecommunications, NTNU, Norway (2013-2014)
- Researcher and Ph.D student at iMinds-MICT, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences/ Department of Communication Studies, Ghent University, Belgium (2008-2012)
- Junior researcher at iMinds-MICT, Faculty of Political and Social Sciences/ Department of Communication Studies, Ghent University, Belgium (2005-2008)
Katrien De Moor studied Social Sciences (with specialization in Communication Studies) at Ghent University. She obtained her PhD from the same university (2012). Her main research activities are situated in the domain of Quality of Experience.
She is passionate about user research and has worked on a range of topics, including early user involvement and bottom-up innovation research, living lab methodologies, innovation foresight and future-oriented technology assessment. She spent one year as Marie Curie postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Telematics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology and is currently continuing her research activities on QoE in different application domains at the same university. She is also still a member of the Research Group on Media & ICT, part of iMinds and Ghent University, Belgium.
