- PhD Candidate in Science & Technology Studies | Researcher | DIYer

'New Craft' Exhibition Building, Triennale di Milano, 2016

I am a PhD candidate in Science & Technology Studies at York University with an interdisciplinary background in media and information theory, design engineering, and digital media practice.

Drawing upon this combination, my doctoral project — Break, Make, Retake: Making as a Design Practice — examines the promises of digital fabrication and the related maker culture towards de-professionalization of design practice and concepts of expertise.

My research interests include critically-informed design research, digital fabrication (computer-aided design & manufacturing), history of technology, and user conceptualizations.
