[WiS Seminar Series]: Supporting creativity and collaboration in design
19 May 2021, 16:00 to 17:00
In a rapidly changing world, systemic and complex issues in domains such as healthcare, work or sustainability can be only solved through collaborations that involve diverse voices - for example in terms of cultural backgrounds or professional disciplines. In fact, multicultural and multidisciplinary collaboration is a key principle of the 'Design Thinking' approach. In this talk, Dr Celine Mougenot will present tools that support creative 'multi-x' collaborations in co-located or online interactions, including VR and AI-based tech.
Dr Celine Mougenot is a Senior Lecturer in the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London. Her research is in Design Cognition and Collaborative Design. She investigates the socio-cognitive aspects of innovation processes and develops computational tools that can support collaborations in design engineering. Celine spent nine years in Japan at the University of Tokyo as a JSPS post-doctoral fellow, then at Tokyo Institute of Technology where she developed her research group with funding from the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). She moved to the UK in 2018.
