Personal profile


Dr Christopher Lim holds a lectureship (assistant professor) in product design and interaction design at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee. He has a diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Singapore and holds a BEng (1st Class Hons) in Product Design Engineering and PhD in Design from the University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art.  He is a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), a member of the Design Research Society and ACM (Association for Computer Machinery).

Prior to his appointment in Dundee, Chris worked as a research lead at design consultancy Nomad-RDC and as a Research Fellow at the Digital World Research Centre (DWRC), University of Surrey.  As a research fellow, he was involved in a cross-disciplinary project funded by the ESRC New Dynamics of Ageing programme looking at the engagement of older people in the co-design process of developing new and innovative ICT products. He was also involved in the development of Com.Cam, an open source media sharing device funded by EPSRC University of Surrey Knowledge Transfer Account for communities with low textual and computing literacy and limited power and network coverage. Chris also co-secured £73K from the Nominet Trust to fund the Tailoring Technology project which brought together groups of older people with design experts, experienced product developers and manufacturers to co-design new internet-enabled ICT devices and services.

Chris was a Co-Investigator in a EPSRC funded BESiDE (Built Environment for Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy) project ( led by Professor Vicki Hanson. The project aims was to improve the mobility and well-being of older people through better built environment design. Chris is also Principal Investigator of a project funded by Scottish Funding Council (SFC) looking at the design and 3D printed adaptive equipment.

Chris’s research interests are in the area of design for the aging and disabled population, co-design practice and Design for Healthcare. He is interested in the design of products that support wellbeing and has continued interests in the relationship between product interaction, cognition and prior generational technological experience.

Chris is an advisor to several PhD candidates (both in the Glasgow School of Art and DJCAD) and has been a PhD examiner at various UK and Australian institutions .

He welcomes PhD candidates and research collaborations.
