I am especially interested in the relationships between design, technology and society. I am already teaching this subject for a couple of years at the Bachelor and Master programme of Industrial Design Engineering. I am also coordinator of the Mastertrack Human Technology Relations, (part of the Master Industrial Design Engineering) and expert in course and curriculum development for the Design disciplines.
My research activities are about the shaping of human-technology relations. My research approach is concentrating on both Design History and insights from Design for the Future, supported by Scenario Planning. I also published extensively on Design Education, and on enhancing Creativity in Innovation and Design through application of Visual Essays.
Recently I started a project about the benefits of Philosophy of Technology tools and methods for Industrial Design practice (and vice versa); The Practical Turn in Philosophy of Technology.
