Personal profile

Research Interests

My research is in Interaction Design and related areas of Human Computer-Interaction, Social Sciences and Humanities. My work is centred on the design of physical-digital artefacts that enable people to engage with speculative scenarios or complex issues such as implications of autonomous systems. I am particularly interested in socio-technological narratives and how they can influence and be shaped by design practice. I'm currently focused on 3 areas of research:

Inclusive IoT: how Internet of Things systems can be designed to better integrate groups that are at the periphery of dominant narratives of technological development. Recent projects include Bitbarista, the Autonomous Energy Devices (Gigbliss Hairdryers and Karma Kettles) and CariCrop. 

Temporal Design: as an attempt to look at time as emerging out of relations between cultural, social, economic and political forces. The concept was the basis of my PhD, and is discussed in subsequent publications at InteractionsDRS2016 proceedings and Design Studies.

Biodesign: how the consideration of biological systems can expand our understanding of artefacts, systems and social relationships.
