Personal profile

Personal profile

My Topics are Design, History and Meaning. I am especially interested in the relationships between Design, Technology and Society. My research perspective is on combining insights from Design History with Philosophy of Technology. Apart from that I am an expert in course and curriculum Development for the Design Disciplines.

I am also coordinator of the Mastertrack Human Technology Relations, (part of the Master Industrial Design Engineering) and External Examiner at Nottingham Trent University.
