Sylvia StuurmanI am Assistant professor at the Open University of the Netherlands, faculty Management, Science and Technology, department Computer Science.

The common theme in my research is Design for Change: design (software architecture, design and programming) software in such a way that changes can be made without detoriating changeability with respect to future changes.

In my teachings I emphasize design for change as well.

I maintain a personal site about my personal interests (which include, as you can see, motorcycle riding).
