My Ph.D. dissertation work is about Distributed User-Driven Design. I am working to answer the following questions:
1. Can we get people from all over the world to help us design future technologies?
2. How can we deal with subjective design input at scale?
3. How good are these user-driven designs?
I have formulated the Distributed User-Driven Design method and built the CROWDESIGN Engine—an online research platform that enables technology creators to follow this design method efficiently on a global scale.
