Professor, Design Practices, Yrjö Sotamaa chair in New Frontiers of Design
Department of Design
I joined Aalto University in 2015 as Professor of New Frontiers in Design at Aalto University. As a researcher, educator and designer, I specialize in participatory and critical practices of design. Previously in Sweden, I worked at Konstfack College of Arts Crafts and Design, at KTH Royal Institute of Technology School of Achitecture, at the national PhD school Designfakulteten, and at the Interactive Institute. Trained as a designer and architect, I have worked in design consultancies and corporate research in the US and Europe, and my PhD is in interaction design. I have led, published and exhibited widely through interdisciplinary and international research projects in the areas of politically-engaged design, feminist design studies, sustainable development, smart materials, and interactive spaces.
