    My research focus is participatory methodologies and collaborative processes online . The common thread of my research so far has been a critique of the norms and values embedded in the systems and aesthetics of communication design and to develop design that accommodates differences and conflict. In my research practice I combine a critical perspective with applied design research, where the design process can be seen as a method to explore social processes in detail rather than solving a specific problem.
