Personal profile

Personal profile

Tessa Beinema works as a postdoctoral researcher at the Human-Media Interaction group.

She has a background in Artificial Intelligence (bachelors and masters from Radboud University) with a specialization in Web and Language Interaction. After graduation, Tessa started working as a junior researcher at Roessingh Research and Development, while also being an external PhD candidate at the University of Twente. In the Horizon 2020 Council of Coaches project (2017-2020), she lead the work package on 'coaching strategies and knowledge base'. In her PhD work, she investigated how knowledge of behaviour change and coaching can practically be incorporated in an artificially intelligent component for selecting relevant (tailored) conversational topics in coaching conversations between users and (embodied) conversational agents. She also contributed to the two open-source projects that resulted from Council of Coaches: the WOOL Dialogue Platform and the Agents United Platform.

Once the Council of Coaches project was completed, Tessa joined the Personalized eHealth Technology (PeHT) programme at the University of Twente, where she finished her PhD and her tasks included the coordination of the Agents United Alliance, contributing to the development of a new telemonitoring platform, and being a coordinator for the VNSU Digital Society Health & Well-being programme line.

At the Human-Media Interaction group she works on the virtual assistant within the ZonMw eCG Family Clinic project. Between March 2022 and September 2023 she worked at Innovation Sprint on virtual coaching and the WOOL Dialogue Platform in the context of European projects such as iHelp and RE-SAMPLE
