Shared Conversations Across Design
C. M. Eckert
Claudia Eckert is a Senior Lecturer in Design at the Open University, the British distance education university. After a PhD conducting her doctoral research on communication and inspiration in knitwear design, she spent 10 years in the Engineering Design Centre in Cambridge, where she conducted empirical studies in engineering change and processes planning and collaborated on the developed of support tools. Comparisons between different design domains has become a focus of her research.A. F. Blackwell
