About me
is a designer and researcher based in London. My practice is interested in the complex relationship between the human body and the systems society has constructed to maintain it. Fascinated by medicine and health, I use critical, speculative, and research-based approaches to reconsider the ways in which we care for ourselves, our planet, and others. Through exploring these relationships, there is an opportunity to authentically and empathetically design towards a more inclusive and sustainable future.
