I am always looking for smart and caring people who would like to conduct higher degree research (PhD or MPhil) in urban informatics, smart cities, human-computer interaction, interaction design, participatory design, media architecture, urban studies, sustainability, eco justice, more-than-human futures, and related topics. You are welcome to propose your own topic and discuss it with me, or consider aligning yourself with one of our group’s current projects, or choose one of the new and emerging topics that we are currently interested in. Contact me to discuss.
