Research areas

My research is about developing methods for interaction designers. Methods that will help them engage with the entanglements of their designs in relation to the body, the social and cultural, and the environment. I do this from the perspective of care. I explore ways for the designer to care for the users’ various situations, desires, aesthetics, norms and values. I work through material prototyping and methodological explorations.
