Only through interdisciplinary collaboration and challenge led curiosity can designers capture less prominent voices and strive towards design practice and policy that seeks to contribute to preferred, inclusive futures for people and planet.

Her research focuses on heritage and innovation in design, with an emphasis on how exploring heritage may be harnessed as one guiding resource to transform design practices in the face of current challenges. With a particular interest in climate emergency and marginalisation of communities, her work is positioned within the UNSDG framework and explores responsible production and consumption and associated environmental and socio-economic goals.

Connecting object and archive-based investigations with ethnographic methods, and by seeking collaborators from fields such as social sciences, economics, computer sciences and engineering, interdisciplinary aspects of innovation, material practices and knowledge transmission are central to her work. With a strong interest in local and global aspects of production and consumption scenarios, she has developed strong international networks within ethnography and design research.
