I am Professor in Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, United Kingdom, since Sept 2020. I am also, since 2016, an editor of the leading scholarly journal Design Issues. Previously, in Finland, I was a professor and head of education in the Department of Design at Aalto University and, prior to that, I worked at Konstfack College of Arts, Crafts, and Design, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, the national doctoral school Designfakulteten, and the Interactive Institute in Sweden. A designer and architect by training, my PhD is in interaction design. I have led, published, and exhibited widely through major interdisciplinary and international practice-based design research projects, most recently in social and sustainable design, design activism and design for policy. I specialize in participatory, critical and politically engaged design practices, as well as “research through design” and feminist epistemologies.
