Thesis: What is digital morphogenesis? Enacting technology, creativity and form in digital architecture

Research: MMy research focuses on the implementation of digital tools and technologies in architectural practice with a specific focus on how these technologies change creative work and decision-making as well as ideas about form and materiality. By focusing on how building technologies are enacted within the digital design studio, I explore how affordances and constraints of the digital realm and specific institutional settings shape work and cognition while also seeking to understand how the technical tools and artefacts of a specialised field of practice might impact processes of large scale change and innovation.

Other research interests: Science and technology studies, material culture, infrastructure, automation, work, embodied and enactive cognition, extended mind.

Presentations:
'Technics, risk and uncertainty in automated finance'. Paper delivered at Civilisation, Infrastructure and the City symposium, The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, London. 7 November 2014.
