Since the launch of BDW in 2009, my research has focused on the impact of tech disruption on both the creative industries and higher learning. In 2017, the tangible manifestation of redesigning higher education for the 21st-century global economy resulted in the launch of CMCI STUDIO. CMCI STUDIO provides a working example of my research into innovative learning environments for higher ed, along with research in design, including design leadership. My industry-focused research has been guided by the need to combine design and technology in the creation and development of products shaped by human=centered design.
