Personal profile

Research interests

I am Lecturer in Design-led Responsible Innovation. I experiment using creative and co-design methods to catalyse cross-disciplinary, cross-sector Knowledge Exchange. My work focuses in ethical implications of technology, looking into values embedded within data systems and practices - trust, security, freedom, consent, privacy.

I do research and cosultancy work in Ethics through Design at isITethical? Service and Knowledge Base (Link Below Picture!) and currently, I'm part of BroadWay Project, practitioner ethical evaluation of European 5G network for disaster response.

In the Centre for Innovation, I teach in the last year trasndisciplinary project and I am unit director of "Pasts, Presents and Futures" (PGT and 2Y) and "Creative Futures" (Bristol Futures Open Unit). I am the Responsible Research Innovation Lead and the Centre's Ethical Representative for the Faculty's Ethics Committee. 

Interested in topics related to: Responsible Research and Innovation, Emergency Response & Risk Management, Ethics of Technology, Feminist Techno-science, Speculative Futures, and, general crossovers between STS and Design.

I like to play and design boardgames, and I'm into mementos and magic tokens.
