About me

Rachael is Director of Research in the School of Engineering and Innovation and joined The Open University in 2013. She is an architect, a design researcher and Deputy Editor for the journal Design Studies. Her research studies how we design buildings, places and other everyday things with a particular interest in how people participate in design processes.
