Rosie is a researcher and educator focusing on the interesting place where design, materials and sustainability overlap. Rosie completed her collaborative PhD at Rematerialise, a collection of sustainable materials based at Kingston University. A key outcome of this research was the understanding that effective communication and collaboration must be central to sustainable solutions.
Rosie’s current work is concerned with how materials information is communicated and translated between designers, suppliers and technologists, to support materials development within a circular economy. Rosie is currently based at Centre for Circular Design (formerly TED UAL) working on the EU H2020 Trash-to-Cash project, which demands open, collaborative information exchange between partners from different industries and knowledge areas.
