Personal profile

Biography

My research sits at the intersection of design, technology and society, where we attempt to understand the impact of emerging technologies and practices, and imagine, prototype and explore possible preferable futures around those technologies. I am particularly interested in:

  • technology in public spaces to support neighbourhoods, communities and civic engagement.
  • designing a trusted Internet of Things by embedding values including privacy, openness, decentralisation, inclusion and literacy.
  • making, DIY and craft approaches to technology, particularly to support people in harnessing technology for themselves.
  • participatory methods combing a range of approaches from speculative design to long-term deployments of functioning prototypes ‘in the wild’.

Previously, I received my PhD from Lancaster University before joining Newcastle University’s Culture Lab (now Open Lab) and DJCAD at the University of Dundee.
