doktorand

Taking a critical approach to the way we treat other animals in society, I research how we may express imaginations for multispecies worlds. With this I am trying to articulate a counter-concept for the notion of speciesism that can be materialised in the practice of design.

My research builds on ecofeminist and postcolonial theory to urge designers towards making more sustainable contributions on a planet in a state of mass-extinction. In practice, I also worked on design projects together with cats, dogs, ants, and penguins. Besides my research, I teach courses in playful interaction and experimental game design.
