Caro worked as a Research Associate at the School of Design between November 2018 and June 2020 on the INTUIT research project.
Caro is a Post-doctoral Research Associate at Newcastle University. She has a background in art, graphic and interaction design. She developed her craft-based practice at the London College of Communication before graduating from the Royal College of Art where she became interested in inclusive and participatory design. Since then, she has conducted participatory research with diverse groups where she used her expertise to design tools for co-creation. In her PhD, she explored the potential of craft and interactive technology for museums, and engaged the local community in the process of co-creating multisensory and digitally-augmented experiences of heritage. Alongside her research, Caro has been teaching workshops and design-led courses at the RCA, LCC and Sheffield Hallam University. She was awarded with “Ones to Watch, Rethinking Reality” by the Design Council in 2015 and has also received funding such as grants from the Arts Council England to support her public engagement and exhibition work.
