I research new technologies and tools used by multidisciplinary human-centered design teams. I am also interested in the role that sustainability plays in early-stage design, both in balancing the users’ and designers’ values with respect to sustainability, and in using sustainability as a source of inspiration for innovation.
I am currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the in|situ lab at INRIA Saclay Ile-de-France, working with Wendy Mackay. My current work looks at how collaborating designers interact with digital designs and physical artifacts through digital fabrication.
