Back to overview

Ruud Jacobs (1987) is a PhD student at the Department of Media & Communication. His PhD research is part of the NWO-funded project Persuasive Gaming: From theory-based design to validation and back that started in October 2013. This interdisciplinary project aims to operationalize persuasive effects in videogames that serve societal goals and is a collaborative effort between the ERMeCC, Utrecht University, Eindhoven University of Technology and four Dutch game developers. Ruud's work is supervised by Prof. Dr. Jeroen Jansz and Dr. Julia Kneer.

Ruud holds a Master's degree in Psychology (2012, cum laude) from the University of Twente. His Master track was focused on human factors and cognition and especially on the psychology of media. Ruud's first publication (2012) explained individual differences in how often consumers download movies from the internet (without a payment or subscription model) using Social Cognitive Theory. His master's thesis was an exploratory study on the effects of movie reviews on the subsequent evaluation of a film's quality.
