Current Research

My current research interests include design for policy (at global, national and regional scales), including the design methods and approaches used in this realm. I am also currently researching design for recovery and resilience as we live through the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular exploring how design interventions have matured throughout the pandemic and what designers and design researchers might learn for the future.

As a cross-discplinary researcher I also have interests in the impact of technologies, in particular those that are fuelled by big-data on our experiences of place. My PhD research, which is located in design and computing explores how we might bring back into balance understandings of place that are based in big data and situated knowledges.
