My interest currently lies in exploring design as a medium for critical inquiry and research. Approaching design as a problem-setting practice (in opposition to the solutionist definition of design), I aim to explore designer’s role to foster discussion about alternative futures and reflection on current and emerging issues related to technological and societal developments.

I’ve recently finished  my final graduation project at TU Delft with the topic “Participation in Speculative Design”, a project exploring the challenges of employing a critical approach like speculative design in participatory settings and in new contexts (out of the gallery).

I’m now looking for freelance and/or full-time opportunities as a design researcher /strategic designer with a focus on the intersection between design, futures and participation.
