Personal profile

Supervisory Interests

My research centres around the relationship between the designed environment and the politics of action. I take a transdisciplinary approach to what I study, including methodologies such as design history, design studies, anthropology, social and cognitive psychology, and philosophy. I am interested in supervising projects concerned with design activism, social design, critical approaches to design, emotion and design, affect and design practice, the politics of design history, craft practice, and the relationship between design, craft and other disciplines.
