Design, Technology and Society

Graduate advisor:   Dr. Stan Ruecker,

Research:

I’m interested in the values embedded in technology and the mutual shaping between technology and society, particularly concerning sustainability, development and its alternatives. I’d like to look into the role of design in community development and education and into how it can be a means for achieving collective goals and strengthen cooperation and solidarity. I’m currently looking at ways in which we can use design in post-conflict areas to spur the reconciliation process.
