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 cultural meanings, its design 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.

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.
