His research is practice-based at the University of Newcastle and looks at the development of a theoretical framework based on the combination of seminal concepts, habitus(Pierre Bourdieu) and tacit knowledge (Michael Polanyi), to interrogate and scope out the nature of style and design process within design practice.
