I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment To which degree is Altmann's memory-for-goals model indicative of higher-level multitasking?
@Jeff I believe I actually read that one, but didn't realize Altmann was also one of the authors. Will read it again with more care, thanks!

comment What is the definition of sanity? How can I prove someone either sane or insane?
... and shorter sentences. Don't be afraid of periods. ;p How does the lack of considering this influence the other insightful considerations (by which you refer to the other answers?). Please be more clear, I do not understand your argument (or comment?).

Better reference to what type of multitasking I'm interested in.

comment Acoustic and light wave coherency?
@StrongBad What does this have to do with "Wave coherency?" Of course a lot is known about colors and aesthetics, e.g. color theory, but that to me did not seem the focus of this question. Equating colors 'side by side' with harmonies in sound waves, as Chris Stronks pointed out as well does not make sense.

comment Psychology of intelligence
I closed this as a duplicate, since in its current form it is hard to tell the difference between the two questions, as reflected in the comments. You can still edit your question to disambiguate yours, and make it clear how your question differs. Ideally, even incorporating the other question and answer into your given question as a basis. To attract attention you can then ping me by writing a comment direct at me using '@Steven'.

comment Acoustic and light wave coherency?
In other words, in order to improve this question you would have to show why you see a similarity (and which similarity that is) between music notes, and colors. In particular, are you talking about how colors side-by-side might look nicely together? Motivate why you feel this is the same than notes played simultaneously.

comment Acoustic and light wave coherency?
Okay, with the link now at least I have an understanding what you are talking about. ;p The problem with this question remains though you do not frame your hypothesis very well. You assume note harmonies and colors are the same thing, but what makes you believe this is the case? You are basically asking whether certain colors are perceived to be nicer than others. This is a highly subjective question, which is another close reason.

comment Short term memory and an effective learning strategy
It is on topic, but could you please rephrase it to be more generalizable? Also, you risk attracting close votes due to this question being formulated as 'self-help', which is a close reason on this site.
