I am a designer and a lecturer who uses practice as an essential part of research and teaching.

I explore ways in which information visualisation processes can be employed to bring together multiple voices exploring pluralistic or contested pasts, presents, and (possible) futures, and how visual artefacts can then be designed to articulate the complexity of these conversations.

Within the City and Urban Futures Cluster I am interested in challenging and breaking the boundaries of “city” research and think about multispecies interactions, more-than-human futures, nature in place, biodiversity, food futures.
