I am a designer-theorist who is concerned with metaphysiological interplay of the body and tools in the enaction of cognition. I started my career working as a concept designer for a number of design consultancies in Britain and Germany before establishing my own design practice and eventually moving into a career as a University Art & Design academic.
My research ranges from the highly speculative through to more applied aspects of HCI and Interaction Design. I place particular attention upon the relational nature of cognition and the material world particularly in respect to deep histories and future trajectories of technology.
I am a co-convenor of the Metatechnicity Research at Cardiff Metropolitan University, and a member of the Transtechnicity Research Network at the University of Plymouth.
I lead the Master of Research (Art & Design) programme and supervise research degree students.
