postcapitalist economics, commons governance, distributed manufacturing

I use design research methods to meet critical challenges to articulating post-capitalist futures. My doctoral research specifically applies speculative co-design of infrastructure to develop a theory and practice of “commonized design”. Commonized design incorporates design principles of commons management and design justice to arrive at a design method that addresses both the political (e.g. particaption, democracy) and the economic (decentralized, open).
