Designer   |   Researcher 

I am a designer and creative researcher working in between the disciplines of design and science, technology and craft. Inspired by notions of sustainability, and fascinated with new digital and biological tools, I am exploring how these technologies could be employed to design a new generation of hybrid materials, and perhaps change our approach to making altogether.
