Personal profile

Personal Statement

I received my Doctorate in Engineering in 2022 with a thesis examining the relationships between human-centred design concepts and manufacturing protocols and ontologies.

More recently, I have worked as a researcher on the PRIME-VR2 projects focused on the development of bespoke rehabilitation devices.

I have published on a wide variety of topics including design-emotion, aesthetics, generative design and ontologies of making and manufacturing.
