I am a design researcher working within and through visual and material culture.

With a specialism in the history of technology and media, my research is focused on making objects speak in different voices through different disciplinary practices.

Coming to design from philosophy, critical theory and cultural studies, my current long-term research interest is slime, its design and cultural histories, and its critical materiality.

I am Lecturer in Design at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I work across undergraduate and postgraduate postdisciplinary design programmes. Previously I have taught at the Royal College of Art, University of Westminster, Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts, Arts University Bournemouth, and Kingston School of Art.

In addition to my academic work, I am also a cultural semiotician and design research consultant for market research, insight, and analysis agencies, working on forecasting and trends projects.
