My research brings together social studies of science and technology, cultural studies, and design to explore relations between humans and nonhumans.

I am particularly interested in creative research methods for understanding - and supporting public engagement with - issues and controversies related to science, technology and animals.

My current research, supported by the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Fund, combines ethnography and speculative design to create possible future scenarios for the use of wireless technologies in the production and consumption of NZ merino.
