Innovation Fellows & Researchers
I work collaboratively in participatory settings with stakeholder organisations and community members to co-create socially innovative initiatives. I draw on theories of democracy, social justice, and sustainability to understand how people can work together and develop local responses to global challenges. In my research and design practice I utilise participatory design and participatory action research methodologies. I am particularly interested in how design research can have long-lasting and sustainable impacts, going beyond short cycles of project funding. Within the CDC, my role cuts across the four thematic areas, researching how co-creation can support digital citizenship and sustainable innovation.
