I am super interested in the cross-applicability of science and design. As a geologist and a designer, I have always wanted to experiment with design techniques in the geosciences. I partnered with Dr. Christie Rowe at McGill University in Montreal. The students had an assignment to write a Geology-format paper on a controversial topic in tectonics. After writing their paper proposals, we moved them through a series of design synthesis and frameworking techniques to expand, show gaps, and rethink their arguments. A great learning experience for me, I’m looking forward to seeing student feedback.
