Exploring engagement and knowledge exchange in design research

This is a part-time PhD inspired by my work. 

Highly introverted and fuelled by coffee and cake, I enjoy reading, writing, music, and lifting heavy things. The answer is always 42.

Live long and prosper.

The blog is where you can read my latest posts, many of which are works-in-progress or thoughts yet to be developed. Comments are usually enabled and I welcome constructive thoughts and differing perspectives – but always bear in mind the words of Flower from the Disney movie Bambi, “If you can’t say something nice … don’t say nothing at all”

Life is not a narrow path, but a sprawling landscape waiting to be discovered

I came to academia a teensy bit later than usual, and when applying for an MA in Historical Research I recall my tutor describing me as a life-long learner. I’d never heard the phrase but I immediately identified with it.

It’s been a long journey from there to the beginning of my PhD however everything I have learned so far will help inform and shape this piece of work which will be a license for even more adventures.

I am very grateful for this opportunity.
