My work is concerned with the agency of images, media and data in processes of urban change. I am also increasingly interested in graphic design as a knowledge practice and alternate forms of academic publishing. My projects include a discussion about the future of London staged on large-scale digital billboards around Central London and the development of a pamphlet series confronting key contemporary urban questions from a diverse range of perspectives. I recently published a journal article about graphic design and research and am working on a manuscript about postcodes and cultures of addressing.
Since 2014, I have run and significantly redeveloped the MA in Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins where I am Senior Lecturer. I am originally from New York and did an MFA in Graphic Design at the Yale School of Art and a PhD in Architectural and Urban History at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
