My research studies:

  • The effects of making techniques on the processes and outcomes of design practice. I’m particularly interested in how techniques structure decision making throughout a process. The main theme I explore is the contrast between those techniques that promote accuracy to a predetermined form and those that promote step-by-step adaptation in response to an emergent form. I aim to better understand and promote the latter, in the hope that these can lead to a more beautiful material culture.
  • The history, philosophy and practice of woodwork.
