My research interests are interdisciplinary, ranging from textile crafts and experimental making to computation and material innovation.
My PhD research focuses on the inherent value and innovative potential of craft-led making and the associated knowledge. The project aims to systematise and disseminate the forgotten techniques of textile manipulation as a method of freeform construction, by embedding them within a visual computation framework. As such, it proposes a truly functional approach to computational design of textile structures, applicable to a variety of creative spheres.
