As a research fellow at Goldsmiths, Tobie Kerridge is currently working on collaborative projects supported by Intel, France Telecom and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, a UK science funding body. His work explores how design methods can be extended to provide individuals with creative ownership of technology. He is also a visiting lecturer at TU/e, Central St Martins and Camberwell.
Previously Tobie has worked for two years as a researcher for Philips Design with the Helen Hamlyn Research Centre, and in the arts education sector on a NESTA funded project. Before graduating from Interaction Design MA at the Royal College of Art, he has held internships at IDEO and Orange UK, and has undertaken a BA in English literature and Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University.
