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 Is meaning-seeking behavior a biological optimization problem?
Nice framing of the question(s), but possibly follow-up questions only make sense once you have received additional answers to frame them even better (or they might no longer apply?). Focus is important as broad pages long answers are not a suitable format here. This seems to be in line with Arnon's comment. Do not expect a full answer here when the topic is too broad. Feel more than free to ask follow-up questions as separate posts, linking back here.

comment Do more accidents happen when you cross the street on red light(as a pedestrian)?
Personally I do not feel this is on topic here, as this question pertains to the environment, and not to cognition.
