I've joined the Kingston University as a Head of the 3D Design Department at the Design School with a portfolio of award winning courses: BA Product & Furniture Design, BA Interior Design, MA Product & Furniture Design and MA Sustainability Design.
Prior to joining Kingston, I've worked internationally both in academia and industry as an interaction designer and as an educator. My expertise lies in the integration of design, human factors and technology. I've also edited numerous major international design research conferences and workshops - including DesignEd Asia, part of the Business of Design week Hong Kong (BODW), Design & Emotion conference 2008 and IASDR 2007.
School Head of Department
I'm currently working on a couple of research projects that resulted from my previous work:
Emotion Wellbeing Tracker device: this is a sensor device that measures the wearer emotions and acceleration in real time to diagnose any possible dangerous mood states.
I'm collecting and analysing design creative methods and tools in Design Schools. This research resulted from my previous work as an editor of DesignEd Asia, and looking at commonalties and differences of creative approaches within briefs.
