research

My work is situated in the social, cultural, and political aspects of design, especially as these relate to globalization and decoloniality. This also extends to ways we can use design processes and strategies to address complex and pressing problems.

I have two research projects described below: 1) Design for Development (D4D) initiative, in which I and my students co-investigate (i.e., partner) with subject matter experts and indigenous entrepreneurs who seek autonomy as they make and market their products and 2) the Mira Project, in which I explore the visual representation of Mexican-ness through creative work and writing.

I have presented my work at numerous international and national conferences and recently published “Co-Designing for Development” with Raúl Sánchez in the Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design (2018). 

investigaciónes

En investigación mi principal línea de acción es a través de la iniciativa Diseño para el Desarrollo (D4D), en la cual co-diseñamos con otros diseñadores, alumnos, y expertos, ideando proyectos sustentables de comercio justo con emprendedores indígenas (Maya, Wixárika) en México. 

He presentado los resultados en numerosos congresos como MX Diseño: Impacto Social de Diseño y Academia Europea de Diseño. He publicado en Routledge Handbook of Sustainable Design (2018) y la revista Latin American and Caribbean Ethnic Studies Journal, entre otros. Contribuyó al Manifiesto Internacional de Educación en Diseño (ICO-D).  Mi obra creativa ha sido exhibida internacionalmente, en lugares como Reino Unido, Hungría, Cuba, Venezuela, México, y los EEUU.
