About me

I am a designer, researcher and lecturer. 

I work in design research and my background is in industrial design. Drawing, making and experimenting are integral activities in my work, which is informed by critical and speculative design, and by feminist design research.

I am lecturer in design at the industrial design department of Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.

My PhD was a design exploration into the role of smartphones for mothers and young children.

I have been exploring drawing and the materiality of drawing as forms of speculative sense making, including the creation of visual conversations that incorporate collaborative ideation. 

Before completing my PhD I was research associate at the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design at the Royal College of Art.

Before embarking on design research I worked as an industrial designer for a number of years. I worked at LEGO in Denmark where I was part of a multidisciplinary team of technologists, designers and psychologists, designing play material for children. I have worked in London at various design studios, designing houseware products, furniture and interactive play material, working with clients in Europe, Japan and the UK.

My first degree is in Mechanical Engineering. I then completed an MA in Industrial Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art/Imperial College and after years of working in the design industry I pursued a PhD in design at Goldsmiths.

Since completing my PhD I have primarily focussed on design research and teaching, although I occasionally collaborate with partners in industry.
