Postphenomenological Insights for Interaction Design Research Methods  

A design research inquiry informed by philosophical perspectives on technology

This research will explore intersections between philosophy of technology, especially the postphenomenological approach and its frameworks, and interaction design research. In particular, this doctoral thesis project aims to show how postphenomenology can be utilized in design research methodologies. In this work, a theoretical base will be developed linking together technology studies and deployment studies with postphenomenology. This base will create a point of reference for further generative exploration.

I expect to be finished with my doctorate in the Spring of 2018.
