Product, Ceramic and Industrial Design Programme; Contextual Studies, BA Ceramic Design.

I teach Contextual Studies to both the 2nd and 3rd Stage students. From an early interest in fashion and design, as drivers of social change, my research interrogates where trends emerge and design thinking and research methods meet in education.

These interests are currently focused on identifying ways to extend the designers range of references beyond the parameters of personal knowledge; individual perceptions of need and peer group approval, to enhance an age neutral approach to design in an ageing population. 

I lecture and supervise on a range of graduate and postgraduate courses at Central Saint Martins and the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
