Research/Creative Interests

The Center for Design Thinking engages in mixed-method research designed to study how various processes support collaborative efforts to address wicked problems (design thinking, deliberative dialogue, community-based participatory research, etc.). I also conduct scholarship on feminist pragmatist philosophies (Grace Lee Boggs and Jane Addams).
