About myself

Hi I’m Olivier Parent and I’m a lecturer and research scientist at Artevelde University College Ghent.

I teach subjects related to the field of UX design, IA, IxD, usability engineering, accessibility, web design, software engineering, and computer science to undergraduates of the professional bachelor degree programme in graphical and digital media. More specifically to those students focussing on multimedia and specialising in software development for web and mobile.

I'm a University of Antwerp alumnus and I hold an M.Sc. of Product Development and my industry experience includes numerous web development projects in Brussels, Ghent, Stockholm, and London (Wimbledon and Westminster) for several high-end clients.
