Background and activities

I am Associate Professor in transition design at the Department of Design, with a PhD (2013) in design for sustainability. 

My research addresses relations between design, everyday practices, and societal change, and the role of design in sustainability transitions and sociotechnical and socioecological transformation. Over the last years, consumption (e.g., energy and materials use, circular economy), urban development and urban natures have been main interests, focusing on topics such as inclusion, cocreation and experimental exploration of human-nature relations, possible futures, and alternative ways of living and working.

I have worked on these topics in interdisciplinary EU and RCN projects, in cross-sector collaborations, in supervision of PhD and master’s projects, and in teaching. I currently also coordinate the department’s Design for Sustainability group and lead the PhD programme in Design (PHDESIG).
