I am a designer and researcher working in the area of materials and textiles. Motivated by the conviction that the materiality of the surfaces and artefacts with which we interact in our daily lives plays an active role in shaping our experience, I explore new aesthetic qualities and functionalities for a wide range of materials through creative manipulation processes. My research interests include the design potential of responsive textile-based technologies, as well as the role of making in the generation of knowledge, and the nature and conditions of emergence of accidental and chance events that fruitfully shape the creative process.
