How we design our made world so that it connects to, and where possible enhances, the natural world, has been the focus of my teaching and research for many years.
I am interested in the capacity of design to equitably create sustainability: from clothes and products to places and infrastructures. Critical to these debates is how we protect our biodiversity and ecosystems over time and make visible the consequences of our actions today on future generations and ecological systems.
