Academic Research

Our Everyday Forms: Coping through displacement and marginalization in our living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens.

It is a project by and for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and Queer, Trans, Non-Binary People of Color. The practice looks like sitting with individuals in their homes and doing home-tours to share their belongings and how they use them particularly to cope, resist, and thrive in marginalization and displacement.

Managing workshops, user-testings, trainings and piloting interventions from multiple entry-points of psychology. These sessions serve as strategic research and prototyping.  

Planning, designing, and facilitating sessions including: piloting research interventions with middle school students, capturing social-emotional learning with design PhD conference participants, designing character-focused classroom materials with K12 teachers, user-testing an online course with K12 teachers, workshopping service design methods with undergraduate students, and facilitating exploratory investigations on 'emotional states' with the general public. The majority of my consulting work is now done through Matter–Mind Studio.
