Biography

Martin lectures in Product Design at the University of Dundee, leading modules on the role of prototyping in the creation of physical digital objects. He is a design researcher specialising in creating speculative, robust, crafted research objects exploring alternative futures of emerging technologies. He works with the Product Research Studio at DJCAD and is currently working on a collaborative project with the Mozilla Foundation Open IoT Studio, a network of practitioners exploring healthy, responsible approaches to the Internet of Things.

Before joining academia, Martin worked for a design week top 100 design agency across Business Development, Product Design and Creative Technologies. His work in industry was featured widely in the media and has been exhibited in the Design Museum, Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Martin’s work explores questions around privacy, security, user agency and ethics in our increasingly automated, algorithmically monitored lives. He creates data driven products, and designs meaningful experiences that link our physical world with our digital world.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
