I am a graphic designer (mfa) and senior lecturer in design.
My research interests are multidisciplinary and span from information design (how to visualise the invisible) to the impact of sustainability on theories and practices of design and design education. I am definitely - but not solely - influenced by having worked for Paolo Soleri in his visionary architecture project in Arizona, combining ecology and architecture in line with local and historical conditions. My most current research focuses on time and temporality in design.
Within the department of design I work mainly within the field of design for sustainable futures and visual communication. I have been course director of the BA design programme (specialisation sustainability), have lead many graduation year projects, and taught courses in collaboration with cultural institutions and public sector. In addition, I am also part of an advanced training course on learning for sustainable change for academic staff from other disciplines.
