Research:

My research focuses on decision making for the regenerative society, using cognitive foresight and ethnography.

I aim to shape engagements that inspire and drive progress and positive change for individual and collective members of the global society.

My most recent work has delved into: (1) enhancing the trust in and validity of design and foresight strategy beyond the present, using experimental prototypes; (2) designing a general-purpose artificial intelligence cognitive model.
