About me

I am an interaction designer and design researcher. My research draws upon care ethics and posthuman feminism to investigate how interaction design might be otherwise amid a world in crisis. I design for situations where technology is often considered out of place, such as in outdoor environments or intimate settings of care. This includes interests living materials, artistic methods, and speculative ethics of design.

I have a BS in Architecture from the University of Virginia, a MFA in Interaction Design from Umeå Institute of Design, and a PhD in Interaction Design from KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

I am currently an Associate Professor of Design at Umeå Institute of Design and a Digital Futures postdoctoral fellow at Stockholm University.
