Lecturer in Design
Goldsmiths, University of London
"metadesigner/ researcher/ lecturer"
I love working within creative, interdisciplinary teams and setting up the conditions for collaborative design experiments, across both educational and business contexts. I have recently moved to San Francisco from London, where I've spent over 10 years working at Goldsmiths, University of London as a lecturer and researcher in design futures and metadesign. My interests include community-driven participatory design, collaborative design tools and methods, urban space, futures and sustainability. I've just completed a PhD in design which engages a range of urban inhabitants in an exploration into 'awkward space' within their everyday places as a prompt for re-imagining and co-evaluating hidden potential in the built environment, or to support and motivate fledgling social practices to emerge from 'awkward space'.
