About me

I am a design researcher and visual artist. Graduated from MA Material Futures, my work explores the cultural, ethical and moral impact of new and emerging technologies and the potential implications that they may have on our future society. I believe that it is only by critically engaging and navigating such technologies and their impacts that we can really even begin to design and imagine a fairer, more ethical and ultimately more democratic and sustainable future. By crossing disciplines and creating provocative scenarios, my goal is to inform, question and ultimately debate current infrastructures, systems or organisations that would otherwise go unchallenged. Currently working as Year Leader for MA Material Futures at Central Saint Martins in London, I have built an interest in using design as a platform to shape our world through the crossing of disciplines in science, technology and craft.
