My research is a hybrid of historical scholarship and design practice that engages in speculative [re]construction of both past and future. I study the spatial and material networks of embedded knowledge in everyday life that can be found in ritual, storytelling, vernacular buildings, practical objects, social networks, and family structures. I am also interested in how emerging technologies generate new forms of representation that influence these practices. I am deeply invested in traditional historical writing with its emphasis on understanding and interpretation, but I also explore how visual, generative, and code-based media engage with data and information beyond the ubiquitous screens of our digital age. I merge text and spatial representation to unsettle assumptions and reimagine the archive as a site for experimentation. I believe that multi-modal approaches can blur the obstructive disciplinary boundaries between design, technology, information science, and the humanities; and in so doing, help us to understand the past while generating possible futures.
