As a Lead Advisor of the Cities Programme at Design Council, I provide design review, support and training for local authorities, developers, design teams and consultants through dedicated design advice programmes in the UK. This includes design advice on schemes such as developing new towns, tall buildings, housing, estate regeneration and public realm. I lead on client management, business development, project management and the design and delivery of design advice programmes.
In Fall 2019 I will finish my PhD in Innovation Design Engineering at the Royal College of Art, looking at the role of AI in public engagement around the climate crisis. As a speaker and curator, I have participated in numerous workshops, industry events and academic conferences. I have given talks on design for social change, urban technology design and low-carbon transition in London, Paris, Copenhagen, Montreal, Yinchuan, Budapest, Mexico City, Puebla, Brussels, Berlin, and New York.
