Dr Andrew Darby

Research Associate in Speculative Design


  • Speculative Design

Andy is a Research Associate in Speculative Design on Wellcome-funded The Future of Human Reproduction project. He is interested in the ways in which alternative design practices like Speculative Design can be used to understand and debate the paths by which disruptive technologies may develop. His PhD thesis explored participatory approaches to design fiction and offered a theoretical framework and practical guidance to support design facilitators in their work with participant groups. As well as developing design fiction research in the UK, Andy has worked on several international research projects in health and speculative design contexts in Canada, Malaysia and Ghana.
