About Maarten Vanhoof

Maarten Vanhoof has quite a different view on creativity, education and innovation. Why? Because he has a hearing disability. At TEDxUHasselt, Maarten will explain this unexpected connection.

One thing is for sure: his unique views pay off. At the age of 22, he was awarded two master degrees; in science and in the arts. Currently, he is pursuing a PhD as the youngest member of the SENSE team in the Orange Innovation Lab in Paris. He mixes ideas from geography, sociology and design with computational and data visualisation techniques to understand the interplay between human mobility and social networks.
